About Us: Global Advisory Committee and Partners

DANIDA (Danish International Development Agency)

The Danish Foreign Service is a globally operating organisation. We work for Denmark’s interests and values in relation to the surrounding world in a manner that furthers the freedom, security and welfare of Danes in a more peaceful and just world, with development and economic growth for all.

Reducing poverty in developing countries is central to Danish development cooperation priorities. A number of crosscutting themes are built into DANIDA’s development assistance: women’s participation in development, the environment, promotion of democracy and observation of human rights. These crosscutting themes are integrated into DANIDA’s development activities more generally.

Countries in which DANIDA currently works are: Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Eritrea, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Nicaragua, Niger, Tanzania, Uganda, Viet Nam, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
