A majority of the Danish Parliament has settled on Denmark's new development strategy and humanitarian strategy. The UN's new 17 Sustainable Development Goals are the starting point of the strategy aiming to contribute to creating a sustainable development of the world.

The Danish Minister for Development Cooperation Ulla Tørnæs is pleased that the settlement behind the agreement was so broad, which strengthens Denmark's vote in the world.
