Development cooperation , 30.04.2014

Regular printed publications, Kehitys-Utveckling magazine


The realisation of the objectives of Finland's development policy requires support from citizens and their confidence in the effectiveness and potential impact of any actions taken. The MFA's Development Communications Unit is responsible for raising public awareness about global development issues and the objectives, themes and results of Finland's development policy Effective development communications require that medium and message meet citizen and stakeholder needs, that texts be written in clear language, and that each message be tailored to its target group. Information is made available not only through traditional official channels but also via social media and at public events. Specific programmes are being prepared to help the media learn about development issues and development cooperation. Kehitys-Utveckling comes out four times a year. The majority of the articles and pictures in the magazine are purchased from external suppliers and the layout and textual editing are acquired from outsiders. Additional expenses arise from printing and posting. The magazine provides information about development issues to people who are interested in world affairs but do not necessarily know about them very much. The magazine is free.
