A broad political majority in the Danish Parliament has entered into a five-year political agreement on the Denmark’s strategy for development policy and humanitarian action. For the first time, Denmark is combining its humanitarian strategy and its development cooperation strategy into one joint strategy. This will contribute actively to the efforts to break down silos across the humanitarian and development work.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) establish a new international framework for development cooperation. Denmark will work to realise this global ambition of the SDG’s for the world’s development towards 2030 through an active development policy guided by the new strategy.
Denmark’s development policy will be informed by four strategic aims:
1. Security and development – Peace, stability and protection.
2. Migration and development.
3. Inclusive, sustainable growth and development.
4. Freedom and development – democracy, human rights and gender equality.
