ADELANTE 2 is an international development cooperation programme of the European Union (EU), managed by the Directorate-General for International Partnerships of the European Commission (DG INTPA). At the forefront of the European Union’s efforts to implement global commitments, in particular the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the mission of DG INTPA is to contribute to sustainable development, poverty eradication, peace and the protection of human rights through international partnerships.
ADELANTE 2 aims to contribute to fulfilling the 2030 Agenda and facilitate a more inclusive and sustainable development, through the promotion and use of Triangular Cooperation between Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean. The programme builds on the experience of the four years of its first phase, and is also part of the growing discussions on Triangular Cooperation at the international level, aligned with its own best practices and those of other partners.
In order to approach Triangular Cooperation from different perspectives, ADELANTE 2 is structured around three components:
- Operational support component, through which the ADELANTE Triangular Cooperation Window European Union – Latin America and the Caribbean is coordinated.
- Institutional support component, which enables the development of bilateral Triangular Cooperation funds with certain countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
- Analytical support component, which seeks to develop studies and analysis in the field of Triangular Cooperation, working together with the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB).
The mobilization of resources for ADELANTE 2 through these three components is yet another example of the European Union’s commitment to strengthening its ties with Latin America and the Caribbean, a diverse region where multiple development realities exist side by side. It is precisely this diversity that makes the region a point of reference for exploring the potential for further initiatives, the exchange of dialogue and good practices between the two regions.
The ADELANTE Triangular Cooperation Window European Union – Latin America and the Caribbean (ADELANTE Window) is a funding mechanism and instrument, within the framework of ADELANTE 2, which aims to mobilise and channel European Union resources towards partnerships between Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean that correspond to the Triangular Cooperation modality, and whose ultimate goal is to fulfil the 2030 Agenda while also seeking more inclusive and sustainable development. It is a demand-driven instrument that aims to be agile and flexible, with a ‘rapid response’ approach.
For Triangular Cooperation Initiatives presented in the ADELANTE Window 2022, a minimum amount of 75,000 Euro and a maximum amount of 150,000 Euro of funding is established through the ADELANTE Window. (Reference: Guidelines for applicants Version 2 – March 2022: Rule 4.1)
