Development Co-operation Forum
The Development Co-operation Forum (DCF) helps establish the consistency and complementarity of Portuguese co-operation, thus allowing for reflection and dialogue between the state, local administration and society with the aim of creating common projects, partnerships, proposals and opinions on co-operation.
The DCF’s main functions are to:
- Issue opinions and make recommendations on co-operation policy and the role of private entities in this area;
- Submit proposals for actions between private and public entities concerning development co-operation;
- Present proposals for providing information, education and raising awareness with the goal of fostering relationships with partner countries and with attention to the Portuguese public opinion on such issues
