About Sida Partnership Forum

Sida Partnership Forum welcomes representatives from the business community, state authorities, public sector, academia, and civil society. Our work focuses on capacity building activities such as workshops, seminars, and courses our training courses regularly arranged in Härnösand, Sweden and abroad, and seminars on fighting poverty that we periodically arrange throughout Sweden. We also participate in conferences on development work in Sweden and abroad.

Current events

An important part of Sida Partnership Forum’s activities is to create arenas and meeting places to focus on priority issues and create synergies between the involved parties

International Training Programmes, ITP

Sida’s International Training Programmes are open to candidates from most low- and middle income countries. The aim is to support and strengthen the participants own plans for change on organizational and sectoral levels and should not be regarded as individual competence training.

Training courses

Our training campus in Härnösand is at the heart of Sida Partnership Forum’s work. Our course listings cover a wide range of topics, and our lecturers rank among the most knowledgeable in the country in their fields.

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.
