Within these areas, Spanish Cooperation allocates nearly 40% of its Development Assistance to supporting social infrastructure and services, including: education, health and human rights protection, and initiatives relating to gender equality, civil society and good governance, water and sanitation and social services.

Various production sectors are also classified as fundamental cooperation areas, including agriculture, fishing or industrial development, emergency aid, debt transactions and awareness creation.
