Cooperation with countries and regions

Denmark is engaged in development policy at the global level, but the engagement is focussed on the poorest countries where the needs are greatest, and where we best can make a difference.

Denmark cooperates with countries in five different geographical regions:

  • Africa 
  • Asia 
  • Latin America 
  • The Middle East 
  • The EU’s neighbours

As a general rule Danish bilateral development cooperation is decentralised, and the relevant embassies have the primary responsibility for development cooperation in the priority countries, however not in the case of support to EU’s neighbours.

Broad network of cooperation

Denmark has a broad network in many countries: national and local government authorities, international agencies, civil society organisations, private companies, the research environment and other relevant actors. In the vast majority of cases the government authorities are important partners.
