We concentrate our cooperation with Georgia to three sectors; democracy, human rights and gender equality, environment and market development. Read about programmes within the market development sector.

Partnership between Georgia National Food Agency, GNFA, and the Swedish Board of Agriculture/National Food Administration

The overall objective of the programme is to facilitate Georgia’s signing of a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, DCFTA, with the EU.

The project objective is to strengthen GNFA’s capacities so that Georgia’s sanitary and phytosanitary (animal and plant protection) rules and regulations are compliant with EU and international standards assuring food safety from “pork to fork” by means of efficient inspection systems, veterinary services and methods for responding quickly to food safety/security related emergencies. Learn more about their work through their webpage.

Partnership between the Georgian Agency for Free Trade and Competition and the Swedish Competition Authority

The overall objective of the programme is to facilitate Georgia’s signing of a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, DCFTA, with the EU.

The objective is to ensure an environment for unhindered competition, thus strengthening the efficiency of the market in Georgia. The programme will provide technical assistance to the Agency for Free Trade and Competition and strengthen their administrative capacities and improve the functioning in terms of transparency and efficiency thus ensuring competition protection that in the long-term perspective will contribute to Georgia becoming part of the European market.

People first

We are committed to enabling people to get a better life. The individual person is always the focus of our work. Here you will meet some people involved in Swedish development assistance. Let them explain how their situation has changed.


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.
