Policies & 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.

Denmark's strategy for development cooperation “The World We Share” sets out a clear set of priorities with the intention to help more people better where the needs are greatest.

Denmark will:

  • Prevent and fight poverty and inequality, conflict and fragility, displacement and irregular migration.
  • Lead the fight to stop climate change and restore balance to the planet. Human rights and democracy will be the foundation cutting across the Danish development cooperation, reflected in a particular focus on the rights of women and girls and the most vulnerable groups.

The strategy is developed in close cooperation with civil society organisations, the private sector, research organisations, and citizens. The political parties behind the strategy are: The Social Democratic Party, the Liberal Party, the Socialist People’s Party, the Danish People’s Party, the Social Liberal Party, the Red-Green Alliance, the Conservative Party, the Alternative and the Christian Democrats. With the strategy ‘The World We Share’, Denmark continues to provide 0.7 per cent of GNI in official development assistance.
