How to notes for implementation of the Danish Strategy for Development Cooperation

A number of notes for how to implement Denmark’s strategy for development cooperation “The World We Share” have been produced with the purpose:

  • To create consistency between strategy, policy, planning and budgeting as a shared framework of reference for the implementation of “The World We Share” and its objectives.
  • To set the framework for prioritising, selecting and deselecting in adherence to the principles of Doing Development Differently, which call for taking a holistic and adaptive approach.

The main target group for the note is employees at the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs responsible for implementing “The World We Share”. Furthermore, they may serve to inform external partners.  The notes are intended as reference documents in programming, in monitoring. in dialogue with partners and in our work with international norms and standards.

In principle, the note will remain valid for the duration of “The World We Share”, and will be revised as required in response to changing contexts and priorities. The political priorities in the Finance Act will always have primacy to the notes.
