Resumo

The present article analyses the relationship between principles and practices for Technical Cooperation between Developing Countries (TCDC), in the case of Brazilian-Mozambican collaboration within the ProSavanah programme. The notion of horizontality can be identified as a strong part of the ideational basis for Brazilian development cooperation. Such egalitarian conceptions are also strongly reflected within the discourse of the ProSavanah programme, but their effectuation encounters a range of complications related to the practical implementation and difficulties with aligning the multitude of different motivations, development perceptions and particular interests permeating the programme. The article argues that a layered approach, with a focus beyond inter-governmental relations, and comprising of local community consultancy and civil society inclusion, is necessary for such cooperation projects to be consistent with their basis of principles.O presente artigo analisa a relação entre princípios e práticas na Cooperação Técnica entre Países em Desenvolvimento (CTPD), no caso da colaboração Brasileira-Moçambicana dentro do programa de ProSavanah. O conceito de horizontalidade pode ser identificado como uma parte substancial da base ideacional na cooperação pelo desenvolvimento do Brasil. Tais concepções igualitárias também refletem fortemente dentro do discurso do programa de ProSavanah, porém, a sua efetuação encontra uma série de complicações relacionadas à implementação prática e dificuldades de alinhar a multiplicidade de diferentes motivações, percepções sobre o desenvolvimento e interesses particulares que permeiam o programa. O artigo argumenta que uma abordagem abrangendo diferentes níveis de foco, indo além das relações inter-governamentais, e que compreende consulta das comunidades locais e inclusão da sociedade civil, é necessária para que tais iniciativas sejam coerentes com a sua base de princípios.
