During 2011, Sida took the decision to start 79 new interventions and a total of 3500 Sida financed interventions were carried out during the year. But how does it work when a programme or a project comes into existence? And what is the most effective way to use the contribution and who should carry out the work?

What kind of development interventions Sida chooses to support depend on several factors. The country’s own potential determines the choice of interventions, as well as Sweden’s development cooperation policies and other donor’s work.

Depending on what kind of aid assistance it is, the process of how to decide and implement an intervention varies. Below you can find an example of how an intervention can come about – step by step:

International Training Programmes

As part of Sida's work with capacity and institutional development Sida offers international training programmes (ITP) for participants from low-and middle-income countries in priority areas. ITP's methodology takes account of the desire to develop and reform that the participants' organization have expressed in their application to the program.
