About Sida


The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Sida, is Sweden’s government agency for development cooperation. We strive to reduce world poverty by allocating resources and knowledge with the goal of making a difference for people in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. To achieve this, we collaborate with actors from civil society and universities as well as the public and private sector. Sida’s activities are funded through Swedish tax revenue.

Sida works on behalf of the Swedish parliament and government with the aim of implementing Swedish development policies. The goal is to enable people living in poverty and oppression to improve their lives. We facilitate development that prioritises the most impoverished in the world. Our vision is to safeguard the rights of every individual and their opportunity to live a dignified life.
