20.10.2010 / 14:29
The new Development Cooperation Strategy of the Czech Republic 2010-2017 seeks to fully exploit the opportunities created by the unification of the development system following the transformation and the adoption of the Act of Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid.
It strives to deepen understanding of development cooperation as an instrument of foreign policy with security, economic, environmental, social and migration aspects, as well as the effective application of the specific experience and skills of the Czech Republic (e.g. in connection with the transformation of society and the promotion of human rights and democracy), and broader use of ties between the development cooperation of the Czech Republic and the EU.
This key strategic document determines the direction to be taken by development cooperation over the medium term and takes account of the Sustainable Development Strategic Framework of the Czech Republic, where one of the Czech Republic's objectives, as a member of the EU, UN and OECD, is to meet international commitments fully and as quickly as possible.
