LuxDev's mission is to actively participate in the implementation of the development cooperation policy of the Luxembourg government, which mainly focuses on poverty eradication and sustainable development in its social, economic and environmental aspects. In order to achieve these objectives in the context of global development, Luxembourg allocates 1% of its Gross National Income (GNI) to Official Development Assistance (ODA) every year.

In the field, LuxDev’s work aims to strengthen their partner countries’ ownership of their development, i.e. their ability to exercise effective control over their own policies and development strategies, ensuring effective coordination of the development support provided by all technical and financial partners. Therefore, in each of its interventions, LuxDev seeks to act as a reliable partner and develop the capacities of the actors with whom the Agency cooperates. To this end, LuxDev aims to master and adopt cooperation approaches that are compatible with the principles of international agreements and are in line with the mandates entrusted by the Directorate for Development Cooperation of the Luxembourg Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs.
