CARE Danmark is a private and independent aid organisation providing long-term development assistance. CARE Danmark is part of CARE International – one of the world’s largest humanitarian organisations. Since its establishment in 1987, CARE Danmark’s focus has been to strengthen the capacity of people who are poor and living in rural areas, including ethnic minorities, to ensure their rights are recognized and respected. CARE Danmark focuses on the right to food as its overarching programmatic and advocacy theme. This is unfolded in three thematic areas:
1) access and rights to land;
2) sustainable markets;
3) climate justice and adaptation to climate change comprising important aspects of the right to food realization.
CARE Danmark works in 8 programme countries and support regional initiatives in Africa and Asia.
Development objective: People who are poor and vulnerable and dependent on natural re-sources are able to realize their right to food.; Immediate objective: Civil society organisations representing people who are vulnerable and dependent on natural resources build and use evidence on gradual rights realization in policy, planning and implementation, acting as credible, legitimate and accountable change agents.
