2018 direction and goals
When Denmark’s Finance Act 2018 was adopted in December 2017, it included an increase in the budget allocated to the Danida Fellowship Centre.
The budget allocation for the capacity development of partner institutions increased from DKK 30 million in 2017 to DKK 45 million in 2018. The allocation for development research and research capacity development totaled DKK 140 million in 2017. In 2018, this has been increased to DKK 225 million.
The budget increase for the Danida Fellowship Centre in 2018 reflects the Danish Government’s efforts to strengthen international cooperation across ministries through the Strategic Sector Cooperation Facility, introduced in 2015. It also accommodates the continued support to research and learning programmes in Danida’s priority countries.
We look forward to scale up our support to Denmark’s collaboration with low-income and emerging economies.
