Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
Sida EVALUATION 02/37 / A repeated criticism against Sida's country strategies is that they do not provide concrete guidance for the selection and orientation of co-operation activities.
This critique is usually directed at the country strategy paper, often found to be a document so vague and void of steering power that it cannot be translated by Sida staff into a common agency approach during the strategy period.
The main point of this report is to argue for some developed
thinking about Sida's country strategies.
