A large portion of Danish development assistance is channelled through multilateral institutions, including the UN system. In New York, Denmark is a contributor to the four main UN funds and programmes in the development field: UNDP, UNICEF, UN Women and UNFPA.
Denmark contributes to the four agencies through both core contributions and funds for their innovation activities, as we believe innovative solutions are needed to improve the way we do development.
