Strategies and guidelines

Denmark’s Engagement in Nepal adheres to specific strategies and guidelines for your reference below.

Human rights represent a core value in our partnership with Nepal, and it is of significant importance for Denmark to ensure Nepali ownership and empowerment in all of our programmes.  In addition, the principles of non-discrimination, participation, transparency and accountability will be integrated in all aspects of our policy dialogue and development cooperation. The risk of corruption is high in Nepal, and Denmark strongly advocate the Government of Nepal to fight against corruption in order to further pave the way towards healthy economic growth and better opportunities for the population. 
Moreover, it is a priority to harmonise Denmark’s engagement in Nepal with other development partners; such as the EU, the UN, international financial institutions, and other countries that contributes with development assistance in order to reach the best results.
