  • To serve Poland – to build Europe – to understand the world

     

  • OUR PARTNERS

  • AT HOME

     

    The main role of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the national system of development assistance is to program assistance policy and to coordinate the activities of its participants, financed by the MFA from the state budget. Our partners in development cooperation implemented in countries that receive Polish assistance are:

     

    • non-governmental organisations;
    • government administration – ministries and their agencies;
    • local governments and their agencies;
    • universities and research institutes;
    • Polish embassies and consular offices;
    • Solidarity Fund PL;
    • volunteers.

    Projects financed by the MFA as part of bilateral cooperation are developed and implemented in partnership with an institution or organisation operating in the country where the project is implemented. The involvement of local partners helps to better define the needs of the local communities and contributes to the sustainability of the projects after their completion.

     

     

    ABROAD

     

    In its multilateral cooperation, the MFA partners with many institutions, the most important of which are:

     

    • the European Union;
    • the UN and its specialised agencies;
    • the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development).

    When Poland joined these organisations (the UN – 1945, OECD – 1996, UE – 2004), it assumed responsibilities for development assistance. By financing the development activities of these organisations and participating in a strategic dialogue on development assistance on their fora, Poland has the right to co-decide about the directions, goals and methods of global assistance policy.
