Danish-Arab Partnership Programme
Help to strengthen good governance and ensure economic opportunities, especially for young people and women in the region.
The Danish-Arab Partnership Programme (DAPP) is Denmark's collaboration project with the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) focusing on reform and democratization. The programme strengthens dialogue, partnerships and mutual understanding between Denmark and the MENA region. The Danish government launched the programme in 2003 to support the reform and democratization processes in the Middle East and North Africa (the MENA region), and simultaneously strengthen the dialogue with the Arab world through the Danish-Arab partnerships. The starting point was the development goals which UNDP's Arab Human Development Report from 2002 had identified as crucial to the region's development. The initiative has since been at the center of Danish foreign policy concerning the relationship with the MENA region.
