How to cooperate
The cooperation between Sida and a civil society organisation can be done in different ways. Listed here are some means for organisations to apply for funding.
What is civil society?
For Sida, civil society is an arena, separate from the state, the market and the individual household, in which people organise themselves and act together to promote their common interests. Sida cooperates with eg people's movements, social communities, women's movements, environmental movements, religious associations, cooperatives, neighbourhood committees and trade unions.
