Guidance on Programme-Based Approaches
The paper seeks to clarify a number of definitions related to programme-based approaches and to guide Sida staff in what working with PBAs means in practice. The paper aims to aid Sida staff in carrying out qualified analysis and dialogue when supporting programmes and to operationalise the Paris Declaration in line with the Swedish Policy for Global Development (PGD) when performing these tasks. The paper should contribute to increasing the share and improving the quality of PBAs, in order to achieve development results for people living in poverty. The paper replaces Sida’s previous policy for sector programme support as Sida’s key guidance for PBAs.
