Finland's Development Policy Results Report 2022
This results report presents the results of development policy and cooperation for 2019-2021. The period has been exceptional: the COVID-19 pandemic, conflicts, increased authoritarianism and climate change have turned the previously positive trend. The share of people living in extreme poverty increased for the first time in 20 years.
In some result areas, crises have slowed down Finland's development cooperation and hampered the achievement of results. The report shows that despite the difficult period, Finland has succeeded in achieving notable results through long-term cooperation based on its own values and strengths.
