Volltext/Full text

Triangular cooperation has become an increasingly popular development partnership modality. This study examines how and to what extent members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) - i.e. traditional donors - engage with triangular cooperation, and how this engagement plays out in the Arab region. Commissioned by the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation, the study finds that DAC member engagement with triangular cooperation has been heterogeneous, ranging from proactive promotion to complete neglect. As part of the global portfolio of DAC members, triangular cooperation with the Arab region presents a similar heterogeneous picture. Beyond complex coordination processes, however, the existing triangular cooperation schemes involving DAC members and Arab partners suggest that there is space for expanding joint action.
