Intensive cooperation in human resources has, as a great added value, its contribution to the understanding of the “other”, both in origin and in destination, but, in order to be an effective instrument in development policies, some prior conditions are required. Thisarticle briefly reviews the International Development Agenda, which determines what people with what training, abilities and experience are needed in order to influence it through their daily work. Next, it analyses the type of cooperation that is carried out from Spain and its implications for human resource policy. Then it presents a categorisation of the elements which are considered to be essential in a professional in the field of cooperation for development. To conclude, it outlines some recommendations for organisations thatcarry out intensive cooperation in the use of people through concrete initiatives for a human resource policy, with special emphasis on the AECI. Finally, it suggests other general recommendations so that investment is made, also from the area of financial cooperation,both bilateral and multilateral, in the training of human resources in order to improve cooperation.
