International technical cooperation

-A +A

Types of international cooperation

Vertical cooperation (VC)

VC refers to the transfer of technical assistance and/or financial resources from a traditional source of international cooperation (FAO, JICA, and CIDA) to a recipient country in the developing world. Due to the level of development our country has recently achieved, we may no longer continue to consider this as a source of resources to supplement shortfalls in Chile. The most important means through which VC occurs are: loans, international experts and volunteers, missions, technical assistance and internships and the donation of equipment.

Horizontal cooperation (HC)

HC refers to the transfer of knowledge and experiences between developing countries, and it mainly occurs through: seminars, workshops, technical assistance and internships, international experts and courses.

Triangular cooperation (TC)

TC refers to an innovative mode of international cooperation that consists of linking a traditional source, that is a bilateral or multilateral body, and a country of middle development, such as Chile, which has well-structured, up-to-date and mature infrastructure as a provider of horizontal cooperation, to work together on projects to assist a third country or recipient of similar relative development. Among the main sources of triangular cooperation the UNDP, FAO, UNICEF, OAS, IDB, USAID and the EU may be mentioned as multilateral sources of cooperation, and Japan, Spain, Canada, England, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Norway, New Zealand, Korea and Finland as bilateral sources of cooperation.
