Policies and Strategies

The policies and strategies section presents the priorities of Denmark's development policy including background documents, the current strategy, and the law for development cooperation.

In 2017, the Danish Government presented its new Strategy for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Assistance. For the first time, Denmark combines its humanitarian strategy and its  development cooperation strategy into one joint strategy.

The strategy "The World 2030" includes four priority areas:

  1. Security, peace and protection
  2. Prevention of irregular migration
  3. Sustainable growth that benefits all
  4. Freedom - democracy, human rights and gender equality

Related policy and strategy documents are accessible from the left side menu. 

Also available are current country and regional strategies and policies. Strategies for Denmark's multilateral development cooperation can also be found in this section.
