The Policy Dialogue aimed to build broader consensus on the necessary elements for good triangular co-operation and agree on policy recommendations and actions by the international community to promote more and better triangular co-operation. The conference brought together senior-level officials from the different partners involved in triangular co-­operation and others interested in getting involved in this form of co-operation.

Discussions at this conference were informed by analytical work carried out by the OECD with a broad range of partners, including a brainstorming meeting that brought together 24 experts in triangular co-operation (on 13-14 September 2012, Lisbon).  The conclusions of this Policy Dialogue will be brought to the attention of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-­operation and other relevant international processes, with a view to encouraging further debate and joint action in the area of triangular co-operation.
