The Government has presented a draft of Denmark’s new strategy for development cooperation and humanitarian assistance. The strategy takes point of departure in the administration of Denmark’s interests and priorities for development cooperation and relates them to the new Sustainable Development Goals that constitute the new frame of international development cooperation until 2030.
The Governments sees the draft Finance Act for 2017 as a first step to put the draft of the new strategy for development cooperation and humanitarian assistance into practice and that it – after its adoption – will be able to impact the Finance Acts of the coming years.
Since 1978 Denmark has met the UN target of giving 0,7 % of GNI on development assistance each year. This will continue in the future.
The draft Finance Act for 2017 prioritises the development cooperation of Denmark in relation to the new Sustainable Development Goals. In the Finance Act for 2017 the Government prepares the ground for: 1) improvement of the situation in the regions nearest to war and conflict inter alia through enhanced coherence between humanitarian assistance and development cooperation, 2) strengthen the focus on migration including readmission of the developing countries’ own nationals, 3) increase development financing to especially growth and employment by mobilising and catalysing private capital and bringing Danish businesses, investors and solutions into play. While at the same time 4) maintaining a strong determination in especially improving equality and rights of women and girls.
