- Demonstrate how triangular cooperation can be an effective means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Since the adoption of the Buenos Aires Plan of Action for Promoting and Implementing Technical Co-operation among Developing Countries (BAPA), at the 1978 United Nations Conference in Buenos Aires, the development landscape has shifted, and international development cooperation dynamics and modalities have evolved. Triangular co-operation is a transformative modality that builds on the complementary strengths of different development partners to bring innovative and flexible solutions to address dynamic development challenges. It can arise from a combination of South-South and North-South Co-operation, creating horizontal coalitions around the pursuit of shared development goals. During this side event, participants will discuss the following topics:
|Contribution of triangular cooperation to the 2030 Agenda
|Building a global and national ecosystem for South-South and triangular cooperation
|Advocacy activities by GPI
|Global Affairs Canada
|Implementation of the guidelines of effective triangular co-operation in triangular co-operation projects
|Comparative advantages of triangular cooperation
|Reporting on triangular cooperation
|Questions, answers and next steps
