Swedish Contributions to Reconstruction & Transformation
in Central America after Disaster Mitch
The main objective of this report is to inform the Swedish Government and the general public; and partner countries and other development agencies about the results of the Swedish contribution. In addition, the report should also constitute an input for further discussion on how to
improve Swedish (and international) support of developmental character in post-disaster situations.
The main assessment criteria for the Report consist of the guiding principles established by the Swedish Government in its decision on the post-Mitch package.
