The development cooperation fund in 2021
The state budget provided the DCF with EUR 281.77 million in 2021; added to which are the assets available on 1 January, i.e EUR 34.98 million, as well as revenue during the year (EUR 724 769.40). Revenue includes repayments by NGOs and agencies of undisbursed funds from projects co-funded by the Ministry. EUR 6.04 million was also routed through the DCF between Denmark’s development cooperation and LuxDev as delegated cooperation.
In 2021, a total of EUR 305.75 million was disbursed through the DCF. LuxDev, as the state’s principal agent responsible for the implementation of projects and programmes falling under the heading of governmental bilateral cooperation, benefited from the majority of this amount, i.e. EUR 117 million (38.27%). Humanitarian aid was credited with EUR 69.54 million (22.75%). Next come multilateral organisations and agencies (14.90%) and non-governmental development organisations, which received EUR 40.54 million (13.26%) as part of the co-financing of their projects and programmes and to cover some of their administrative costs. The balance was accounted for by projects implemented by the Ministry directly with other partners (9.77%) and programme support (1.05%).
