The Danish government has presented its priorities for the Danish Development Cooperation 2016

Denmark has a world-class development cooperation. We live up to the UN target of giving 0.7 per cent of GNI to the poorest people of the world. We are one of only five countries that live up to this target, and we will continue to do so. In the draft Finance Act for 2016, the government allocates DKK 14.8 billion to development assistance. Concurrently, the government will work to encourage other rich countries, not least in the EU, to live up to their international obligations as well.
