In the context of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted in 2015, the Principality’s international cooperation and development policy has made combatting poverty its priority.

The Principality’s actions focus on four main areas: health, food security, socio-economic inclusion and education. More than 130 projects are supported each year in 11 partner countries. The focus is primarily on the most vulnerable populations: children, women, people with disabilities, refugees and so on.

Emergency humanitarian aid, given in response to various crises around the world, natural disasters and political conflicts, are another priority for Monaco’s international development policy.

Monaco’s official development assistance has been steadily increasing: from EUR 1 million in the mid 2000s to around EUR 21,5 million in 2022.

The Prince’s Government’s policy on official development assistance is implemented by the Department of International Cooperation.
