Natural Resources, Energy and Climate

In September 2013 the strategic framework for natural resources, energy and climate (NEC) was published.

Denmark’s development cooperation strategy, The Right to a Better Life, adopted by the Danish Parliament in May 2012, includes green growth as one of four priorities for Denmark’s development policy engagement.

The objective of the Strategic Framework for Natural Resources, Energy, and Climate (NEC Strategy), together with the 2011 Strategic Framework for Growth and Employment (GE Strategy), is to jointly set the priorities and define the instruments for Denmark’s development cooperation for green growth.

The NEC Strategy provides the framework and demonstrates opportunities for pursuing greener pathways across all instruments and intervention areas in Danish development cooperation.

This will be the key approach for mainstreaming environment as a crosscutting issue in Danish development cooperation.
