Triangular co-operation repository of projects


Triangular co-operation is a highly relevant mechanism to implement the 2030 Agenda. There is a great variety of triangular co-operation in terms of scale, scope, regions, sectors and project types. Available project data and evaluations point to an increase, between 2012 and 2015, in the number of projects, their budgets and their durations.

This on-line database mainly includes information on over 420 triangular co-operation projects that respondents shared in the survey that the OECD conducted in 2015. The database is being progressively expanded as the actors involved in triangular co-operation report their activities to the OECD (information to be included in the database can be sent to:

The database can be searched by the actors involved (i.e. countries, international organisations or other non-governmental actors) as well as by sector, budget range, whether costs are shared and start date. Specific data of particular interest can be downloaded (see instructions below the map) as well as the full database (excel,120 kb).
