What is an "International Cooperation"?
Under that name is understood the voluntary help of a donor or a country (state, local government, NGO) to a population (beneficiary) of another. This population can receive the collaboration directly or through their State, local government or an NGO in the area.
The fields covered by international cooperation are very varied. Among others, the following can be mentioned:
- improve public health;
- improve education;
- improve environmental conditions;
- reduce social and economic inequalities; etc.
Many countries need the help of others to be able to advance socially, recover after a natural catastrophe and so on. Without international help, on many occasions it would not be possible!
