New economic dynamics and an increasing sense of responsibility for promoting global peace through contributing to global sustainable development have enabled Turkey to emerge as a new and dynamic player in the international development cooperation architecture. In line with the policy objective of contributing to the creation of a more peaceful and stable environment in the neighbouring regions, Turkey has come forward as an active stakeholder in regional and global stability.
As part of its policy of utilizing a wide range of soft power instruments such as assuming a mediator role in regional conflicts, Turkey also boosted its ODA to various countries affected by conflicts and other sources of instability such as natural disasters.
Changing international environment in the late s resulted in the emergence of the Caucasus and Central Asian countries as independent republics. Turkish foreign policy towards the Caucasus and Central Asia, areas which were virtually out of the range of Turkish policy throughout the Cold War years, has thus been reshaped.
Turkey seized the opportunity to strengthen its relations in a vast geographic area in Eurasia, with which it has historical, cultural and linguistic ties.

Main areas of cooperation in Africa include agriculture, health, education, water and sanitation, vocational training, institutional capacity development and humanitarian assistance.
