· Art. 23: “The regional programme (…) will focus on: (…) iii) Supporting and connecting programme countries in capturing, codifying and sharing lessons learned, good practices and success stories, and accessing regional and global expertise and cutting-edge research, including through South-South and triangular cooperation”.
