Trilateral Development Cooperation in Agriculture

China-Britain-Uganda: Trilateral Development Cooperation in Agriculture
CARI Working Paper and Policy Brief, octobre 2018

Trilateral development cooperation is believed to reflect aid’s changing geographies while helping to forge new, more equitable partnerships. Chinese engagement in trilateral development cooperation has so far received limited attention, and these papers by Hang Zhou seek to fill the gap. By drawing on field research from one of China’s first trilateral projects with traditional donors in Africa — a Ugandan cassava project co-initiated with Britain — these papers detail key coordination challenges from the project implementation phase. More importantly, they also critically examine two often-claimed “advantages" of trilateral development cooperation: its contribution to more horizontal development partnerships and its role in providing recipient countries with more suitable technical assistance.
