Development cooperation denotes a concerted effort taken in partnership by developed and developing countries, international organizations and non-state institutions (including NGOs and businesses) to level out global development differences by raising living standards in less developed countries. Development cooperation aims to reduce and eradicate poverty around the world.
The primary objective of Poland's development cooperation is to create conditions for sustainable development of developing countries. This aim is pursued in particular by promoting and consolidating democracy and respect for human rights, helping create modern and efficient state institutions, promoting their sustainable social and economic development1, undertaking actions which contribute to reducing poverty and improving the health condition of the population, as well as raising the level of education and professional qualifications of the population.
A distinctive characteristic of Poland’s approach to development is a deep conviction, stemming from the period of social and economic transformation, that development and creating a prosperous society are impossible without democratizing public life. Consequently, Poland’s development cooperation focuses, among others, on two priority areas of support: democracy and human rights, and good governance meaning in particular: regional development, enhancing the competences and capacities of public administration; reinforcing the rule of law and combating corruption; reinforcing the rule of law and combating corruption; access to reliable and objective information;
