Does your company want to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals and at the same time seek business opportunities? Then the Danida Market Development Partnerships (DMDP) programme is a good opportunity. DMDP promotes commercially oriented partnerships, which contribute to market development and promote local economic growth and employment in developing countries.

The point of departure for a partnership project is a business idea driven by one or more businesses that conduct responsible business. The business idea must support local development and contribute to promoting Goal 8 (local economic growth and employment). This is achieved by combining knowledge, solutions and resources from companies, civil society organisations, business organisations, public authorities, and non-commercial partners. This creates more transformative development results and viable business.

From today, DMDP is open for applications from potential partnerships. DMDP has a budget of DKK 80 million in 2018 for between 10-12 partnerships. Concept note applications must be sent before 16 August 2018. To be considered, the partnership must as a minimum include one private business and one non-commercial partner. One of the partners must be local. A non-commercial partner must send the application.

Please address any questions regarding DMDP to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Department for Growth and Employment (
