The review assesses the performance of Finland, including how its commitment to the 2030 Agenda translates into action on the ground and how it can strengthen its partnerships with a view to adopting a whole-of-Finland approach in the face of steep budget cuts.



Policy vision and framework

Finland's 2016 policy has a clear, high-level policy statement and four broad, well-defined priority areas that are clearly reflected in its bilateral and multilateral programming. The goal of Finland's development policy is to eradicate extreme poverty, and it concentrates its development assistance in sectors and countries where it has knowledge, experience and expertise; however, the policy's new emphasis on the private sector will require a reorientation in the skills required. Finland has nine long-term partner countries in which it supports a maximum of three priority areas.
