  • Danish foreign aid and international development funds are distributed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs known as the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).
  • According to Danish policy, “questions of accountability and the involvement of actors external to Government and Parliament have been of central importance since the initial phases of the Danish aid programme.”
  • Claims Danish development assistance is to “strengthen[] the peace process and realis[e] a sustainable Palestinian state.”
  • DANIDA funds NGOs such as Dan Church Aid, Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Network (EMHRN), Medicins Sans Frontiers, Save the Children, Caritas, Ma’an News Network, and the PLO Negotiations Support Unit; claims such funding is to support “NGOs, especially those working for human rights and democratisation”. The activities and political campaigns are inconsistent with these declarations.
  • In December 2006, DANIDA allocated 1,132,000 DKK to a “planning survey” in “a Palestinian neighbourhood in East Jerusalem” by Bimkom.
  • Danish contributions to development cooperation within the European Union account for almost 15% of Denmark's multilateral development assistance or approximately 7% of Denmark's total aid budget.
