Maps of the world can be drawn in several ways. Generally, area measurement is used and, represented in this way, the Kingdom of Denmark – not counting the Faroe Islands and Greenland – with its 43,000 square kilometers (26,700 sq. miles) is smaller than many of the individual states of the United States. However, if measured by the share spent on development assistance, Denmark is placed very high internationally – the country is one of only five in the world that live up to the UN target of granting 0.7 per1 cent GNI to development assistance. The same1 applies if the yardstick is the number of Danish police and military forces sent out on peacemaking and peacekeeping missions. And let’s not forget, that Denmark is leading the transition to a green growth economy.
