‘Decentralised Cooperation in Latin America: a view from South-South cooperation’ is the title of a recent study by Agustin Fernandez de Losada, an expert on governance, state modernisation and international cooperation, and a member of the Interarts board. The publication is the upshot of months of research and joint work with the Ibero-American Programme for Strengthening South-South Cooperation (the PIFCSS, in Spanish) and the units responsible for decentralised cooperation in foreign ministries and development cooperation agencies in 18 Latin American states. Fernandez de Losada reviews decentralised cooperation in Latin America and the growth of south-south cooperation, and goes on to analyse the best role for this type of horizontal cooperation in implementing Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. Finally, he examines how states can contribute to galvanising support mechanisms and defining multilevel coordination spaces to ensure greater coherence in development cooperation policies.
