International collaboration for short-term technical assistance in Latin America and the Caribbean:

TAP-EDM Forum 

The trilingual TAP-EDM event, which convened nearly 100 online and in-person participants on February 15, 2024, was a resounding success. The Forum, in collaboration with the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM-Canada), aimed to illuminate Latin America and the Caribbean ‘South-South’ connections facilitated by Canadian technical assistance. Throughout the event, attendees were engaged in discussions highlighting the impact of short-term technical assistance initiatives. Led by Canadian experts in tandem with regional partners, projects spanning from climate resilience to educational pathways for refugees, sustainable procurement to food safety were showcased. These discussions underscored the power of cross-border collaboration and knowledge exchange in driving successful outcomes. This event was brought to you by Global Affairs Canada and implemented by Alinea International.
