Danida Fellowship Centre’s Strategy
Danida Fellowship Centre’s mission is to support the creation of new knowledge and skills and to prepare and inspire potential change agents to channel their knowledge and skills into actions that tackle global challenges using sustainable solutions.
Sharing knowledge is essential for finding sustainable solutions to the challenges facing us today. Sharing knowledge and transforming knowledge into action, however, does not happen by itself. It requires a concerted effort.
In Danida Fellowship Centre’s 2021-25 strategy we focus on how the skills and capacities we support can be transformed into action.
Consequently, the name of the strategy is Knowledge in Action, and the three overarching objectives are as follows:
- To prepare individuals to act as change agents who contribute to transforming their organisations and communities through new knowledge, skills, motivation, inspiration and networks;
- To support organisations in developing the capacity of their staff and establishing new networks, and in institutionalizing and applying new knowledge, capacity and networks to create new sustainable solutions;
- To foster collaboration and the identification and implementation of sustainable solutions across organisations, sectors, disciplines and borders.
Danida Fellowship Centre contributes to more sustainable solutions to global challenges as framed by the sustainable development goals (SDGs). Sustainability is therefore a crosscutting focus of the 2021-25 strategy with special emphasis to durability, green solutions and inclusiveness.
