Vision for a strengthened field orientation - Action Programme
Poverty varies between different situations, and high quality analytical and implementing capacity is needed in the field. It is therefore essential to give high priority to knowledge and action at local level. Sida's vision is to create an optimal balance between an empowered and strengthened field organisation and a supportive organisation at headquarters, thereby creating the best possible prerequisites for fulfilling the poverty reduction goal. Sida will accordingly be an organisation where a strong field, in terms of resources, decision-making powers and access to international communication, and a correspondingly specialised home office will make possible a deeper and wider dialogue, a greater degree of partnership, and higher quality in programmes of development cooperation.
