Abstract: For the International Cooperation Sector, the project is the most used financing mechanism for the transfer of resources, and given the peculiarities of the sector, the projects have a set of differentiating characteristics that catalogs them as a highly complex particular typology, which makes its successful management a permanent challenge. Despite the significant amounts of money mobilized by the sector and the importance of the objectives of these projects for aid recipient countries, the low performance rates of these projects have become a generalized result and the empirical study of the causes of this situation is scarce. This descriptive and exploratory research statistically analyzes the perception of a representative sample of project managers from the sector in Colombian Non-Governmental Organizations in order to understand the general context for the adoption of good project management practices in this sector and their impact on the success of these interventions.
