The Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) is the section of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs dedicated to providing aid and financing pro-development activities in developing countries worldwide.
The new strategy for Denmark’s development cooperation ”The Right to a Better Life'' creates the foundation for an effective Danish development cooperation, which aims to combat poverty and promote human rights. Economic growth is central to the strategy, but growth should be green and promote social progress in order for it to contribute to improving the lives of poor people and their ability to create a better life for themselves.
Denmark has been granting development assistance since the end of the Second World War. It is one of the five countries in the world that meets the United Nations's target of granting 0.7% of gross national income (GNI) in development assistance.
