Polish Aid

Polish Aid is Polish development cooperation implemented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the basis of the Development Cooperation Act of September 16, 2011. The MFA implements activities in cooperation with governmental bodies, social organizations and local entities in partner countries as well as within the framework of international organizations. They are planned in a multi-annual perspective - the current strategic document is “Multi-Annual Development Cooperation Program for 2021-2030. Solidarity for Development”. The operational documents are annual Development Cooperation Plans which define, among other things, the specific forms of cooperation as well as the amount of funds allocated to each priority country or to a given development cooperation task.
