Camões, I.P. orchestrates the co-funding of programmes, projects and activities through bilateral and multilateral co-operation with NGDOs.

Interventions on a bilateral level are consistent with the strategic guidelines and financial packages set out under the terms of the Strategic Co-operation Programmes that are negotiated and agreed with the partner country.

These interventions, which can combine types and methods of assistance based on complementarity, creation and synergy, as well as the outcome of partnerships, require a certain level of concentration, increased size and greater visibility, a system of management by results and the adoption of an approach that promotes the development of skills, systematic assessment, local ownership and a clear exit strategy. Interventions should take into account transversal issues such as gender equality, the environment, climate change and resilience.
