The aim of our aid programme is to reduce poverty, hunger and humanitarian need, with a particular focus on sub-Saharan Africa. By supporting long term development and providing humanitarian assistance in over eighty countries, on behalf of the Irish people, we are helping to build better futures for some of the world’s poorest communities.
Our priorities are outlined in One World One Future: Ireland's Policy for International Development. Our focus is on reducing hunger and improving resilience; inclusive and sustainable economic growth; better governance, human rights and accountability.
Ireland is playing its part in addressing poverty, injustice and damage to our planet and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in these priority areas.
