Communications with stakeholders


The implementation of the goals of Finland´s development policy relies on the essential support of Finnish citizens and the relevant interest groups. The Unit for Development Communications supports the Ministry´s departments and units in charge of development policy and development cooperation in communicating about their work. The common goal is to make both the policies and their relevance as well as the results of Finland´s development cooperation known among the stakeholders and the Finnish public. The guidelines for all the Ministry communications are openness, clarity and reliability. Timely communications, active cooperation with the media and strategic work with the stakeholders are all needed. Long-term global education is equally important as it paves the way for global citizenship. A key communications project for interest groups is a programme offered for decision makers to familiarize themselves with development policies. In the course of 2019, the Ministry is preparing the next edition of this programme as well as developing communications for the alumni. The allowance is also used for the yearly opinion poll on the public´s attitude. PR-material such as cotton bags are also produced with the allowance. Finland takes part in OECD Development Centre DEVCOM-group and pays a membership fee. The allowance for communication for interest groups, 80 000 euros, will be used during 2019 and early 2020.
