Technical Cooperation Section
The role of the Technical Cooperation Section is to effectively position the OAS – Executive Secretariat for Integral Development (OAS-SEDI) in its efforts to optimize partnerships, build alliances and networks, leverage development assistance and provide more targeted technical cooperation initiatives.
This includes moving towards an alliance model that is designed to offer Member States options for securing development assistance that is community based, locally delivered and responsive to their specific capacity building needs, as they lead and manage their own socio-economic development.
The Development Cooperation Fund is a key mechanism to support development cooperation at the OAS. Through the DCF, Member States have an opportunity to:
- Access seed funding to support national and multinational initiatives.
- Strengthen institutional and human resources capacity.
- Promote Triangular and South-South cooperation
This practical exchange is the core of CooperaNet, where a Member States’ needs are matched with solutions provided by other countries or by different actors. It also offers a space for engagement among development partners through the creation of groups, discussions, and events.
- Online Hub for Development Cooperation
- Member State <--> Member State
- Member State <--> Multi-Sectoral Partners (academia, private sector, civil society, and international organizations)
Enabling the creation of partnerships for development is our mandate and mission. The OAS recognizes a new cooperation landscape where both small and large countries play a leading role in development and where different actors are becoming ever more strategic. Through face-to-face and online interactions, the OAS strives to:
- Facilitate strategic engagement among multi-sectoral partners.
- Build alliances for Socio-economic growth.
- Match needs with opportunities.
