CONTRIBUTING TO LUXEMBOURG’S DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION
Programme support manages operations relating to the deployment of human resources working for Luxembourg’s Development Cooperation: paid internships at the Directorate of Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs, unpaid internships within the NGO ENDA Tiers-Monde, the cooperation volunteer service (SVC); Junior Technical Assistants (JTAs, an MFA-funded development cooperation internship programme managed by LuxDev) or the Young Professionals in delegations at the European Commission and the European External Action Service and the Junior Professional Officers (JPOs) and UN Volunteers (UNVs) at the various UN agencies.
In addition, the Directorate of Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs grants financial support to aid workers working on behalf of various accredited Luxembourgish NGDOs. Alongside this, the purpose of development cooperation leave is to enable members of these NGOs to participate in development programmes and projects in order to assist the people of developing countries, both for missions in Luxembourg and abroad. Development cooperation leave and aid worker status are granted in the form of ministerial orders.
