As an integral part of our country’s foreign policy, the Italian Development Cooperation’s approach is based on two priorities: first, the need to ensure the protection of life and human dignity to all the planet’s inhabitants; and second, a vision of cooperation as a method by which to install, improve and strengthen relations among various countries and various communities. This peer-to-peer exchange, in addition to increasing that mutual understanding necessary for comprehending the real needs of the recipients of interventions, fosters relations aimed at economic and, most importantly, at social and human growth respectful of the environment and cultural variety and capable of protecting common assets such as water, food and energy, so as to ensure the greater prosperity of populations and peace among people.
Italian development cooperation policy also aims to pursue these objectives along with economic, cultural and security goals, by strengthening the role and image of our country around the world.
