We have a dual mission in this field. It involves, on the one hand, encouraging the Belgian citizens to take a well-informed stance on development-related problems, and, on the other hand, developing individual and collective attitudes and behaviors in favor of a fairer and more solidarity-based world. In this way, the DGD contributes to developing support for development cooperation. It does so by developing a strategy which targets collaboration with NGOs which work to strengthen North-South solidarity. In order to implement this strategy, the DGD allocates subsidies for information activities and programmes.
