Demark's priorities for development cooperation
In its strategy “The World 2030,”
Denmark sets out four strategic development cooperation goals:
- Security and development – Peace, stability and protection
- Migration and development
- Inclusive, sustainable growth and development
- Freedom and development – democracy, human rights and gender equality
- Poor, fragile countries/regions: Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Palestine and Somalia, Syria and neighbouring countries, Sahel, and the Horn of Africa
- Poor, stable countries: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Myanmar, Tanzania, Uganda
- Transition and growth economies: Ghana, Indonesia, South Africa, Ukraine, Georgia, Vietnam, Egypt, Brazil, Colombia, China, Mexico and Turkey and other middle-income countries.
The bulk of available Denmark's development cooperation assistance will be dedicated to the first two categories, with a particular emphasis on fragile countries and regions characterized by fragility.
