Development cooperation

International development policy dialogue and development management


The funding is mainly intended for use by the Unit for Development Policy. It enables policy influencing and the further development of procedures and methods. The priorities of policy influencing relate to issues that are of importance for Finland's development policy and its implementation, such as quality assurance, results and effectiveness of development cooperation, and the development of operating procedures. The development work that takes place in the Unit for Development Policy concerns the entire ministry and includes the development of new instruments, methods and operating procedures, guidance, monitoring, expert missions and visits as well as the organization of seminars and other events. The funding supports the training of the Unit's personnel in development policy and development cooperation related matters. The competence of the staff is also supported, by e.g. enabling the staff of the Ministry and the Finnish Embassies, especially the locally hired staff, to participate in development policy training.
