Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs administers development cooperation. The Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for the planning, implementation, and quality assurance of Denmark’s development cooperation.
The foundation of Denmark’s development cooperation is anchored in democratic values and human rights. In particular with regards to promoting and protecting the rights of girls and women along with vulnerable and marginalized groups.
Denmark's strategy developed in 2021, 'The World We Share', sets out the foundation for Denmark’s development cooperation from 2021 to 2025 and has two main priorities:
- Preventing and fighting poverty and inequality, conflict and displacement, irregular migration and fragility.
- Lead the fight to stop climate change and restore balance to the planet.
Denmark will continue to provide 0.7% of GNI in official development assistance.
In education, Denmark will:
- Work to ensure quality education for children and young people in humanitarian and development interventions.
- Work to ensure equal access to education, with focus on vulnerable groups, higher quality education as well as gender equality in and through education, enabling boys and girls to grow up as equal citizens.
