Donor Rankings, 2020
One of four key aims in Denmark’s Strategy for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Action, entitled “The World 2030”, is the promotion of freedom and development – democracy, human rights and gender equality. This aim places sexual and reproductive health and the rights of women and girls at its centre.
The Government of Denmark believes that ensuring equal opportunities and rights for women, men, boys and girls is crucial for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and that gender equality requires ensuring the human rights of all women and girls, including safeguarding their sexual and reproductive health and rights. Therefore, the Government of Denmark is a strong political and financial supporter of UNFPA’s mandate and activities.
Denmark’s financial contribution to UNFPA comes in various forms. A core contribution supports UNFPA in its efforts to ensure the sexual and reproductive health and rights of all women and girls globally. An earmarked contribution for UNFPA Supplies supports UNFPA’s work to help countries build stronger health systems and widen access to a reliable supply of contraceptives and life-saving medicines for maternal health. A contribution to UNFPA’s innovation initiative supports the development of innovations with the potential to improve development and humanitarian results on the ground. A contribution supports UNFPA’s humanitarian work, as women and girls often face extraordinary burdens in humanitarian crises. Denmark also makes contributions to UNFPA’s work through its bilateral country programmes and for specific projects.
“Denmark has long been and continues to be at the forefront of the fight for women and girls’ right to decide over their own body and we consider UNFPA as a critical and trusted partner in this fight. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s devastating consequences for women and girls, there is a risk that even the limited gains made over the past decades will be rolled back – in other words, a real risk that the lives of women and girls will change for the worse. With activities in more than 150 countries, UNFPA has a unique position to offer support tailored to the reality on the ground. This is needed more than ever. Building on the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25, convened by Denmark, UNFPA and Kenya in 2019, Denmark is committed to a strong partnership with UNFPA to ensure that women and girls are able to plan their family, their life and their future.”Flemming Møller Mortensen, Minister for Development Cooperation and Minister for Nordic Cooperation
