According to Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark in 2018, Denmark will provide a total amount of DKK 220 mln (USD 36.46 million) in support for UNDP's activities for the 2030 Agenda.

DKK 110 (USD 18.23 million) mln will be provided in core funding for UNDP's regular activities and programmes around the World.

DKK 95 mln (USD 15.75 million) will be provided in thematic contributions to support governance and inclusive societies as well as early development responses to crisis and recovery.

This aid will directly go to UNDP's work on the ground in fragile states in Africa and the Middle East with the motive of promoting more inclusive and peaceful societies, the rule of law and protects human rights in conflict-affected states.

Furthermore, DKK 15 mln (USD 2.49 million) will go to the UNDP Innovation Facility. This facility seeks to re-think and improve current development approaches and to identify new ways of addressing global and complex development challenges more effectively, thereby creating real impact for people and for the planet. Denmark is the main donor to the work of the Innovation Facility.

Since 2008, Denmark has remained a top ten donor to UNDP's core resources, supporting the efforts to e.g. eradicate poverty and address climate change-related developments. Denmark continues to support UNDP, UNICEF, UNFPA and UN Women in their respective missions to support the fight against poverty and help countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
