RIO DE JANEIRO - Despite shrinking budgets for official development assistance, Japan has started a new form of foreign aid that includes teaming up with a country it once helped, which it dubs “triangular cooperation.”
Japan once helped Brazil grow into a major agricultural power. It now is drawing on that heritage in linking up with the South American nation to assist Mozambique, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Development aid is a major subject of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, or Rio+20, being held here through June 22.
