Democratic values and human rights are the foundation of Danish development cooperation as described in the 2021 Danish Strategy for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Action, entitled “The World We Share”. Denmark will promote and defend human rights, with particular focus on the rights of girls, women and marginalized groups. The strategy sees gender equality and women’s economic and political empowerment as contributing to economic growth and to more equal and democratic societies. Denmark will continue to lead the way in the global fight for gender equality and protection of girls and women’s rights, with a particular focus on sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Building on this foundation, Denmark will use development cooperation to prevent and fight poverty and inequality, conflict and fragility, displacement and irregular migration. This priority places sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls in humanitarian settings, gender-based violence among displaced people, and human trafficking at its center. Denmark will also lead the fight to prevent climate change and restore balance to the planet.

Denmark’s financial contribution to UNFPA comes in various forms. The national budget ensures a core contribution to support UNFPA in its efforts to ensure the sexual and reproductive health and rights globally; an earmarked contribution to UNFPA Supplies Partnership to widen access to a reliable supply of modern contraceptives and life-saving medicines for maternal health in West Africa; and a contribution to the humanitarian work of UNFPA, as women and girls often face extraordinary burdens in humanitarian crises.
