The Scottish Government's refreshed International Development Strategy replaces the existing 2008 Policy document.
This new strategy builds upon our success since 2005, preserving the best aspects of our work to date with a commitment to fundamentally embed the UN Global Goals.
Scotland's International Development Strategy contributes to the fight against global poverty, inequality, injustice, and promotes sustainable development via the mechanism of the UN Global Goals.
Our Priorities in pursuit of our Vision are to encourage new and historic relationships, empower our partner countries, engage the people of Scotland and enhance our global citizenship.
Our Partner Countries are: Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda and Pakistan. The first 3 countries will form our sub-Saharan African project base and there will be a strong emphasis on education in Pakistan.
Our ways of working involve investing our International Development Fund, utilising Scottish expertise, collaborating with others and promoting the Beyond Aid Agenda.
