Cooperation Drivers – The essence of Partner Driven Cooperation

Uppdaterad: 21 november 2014

Det bilaterala utvecklingssamarbetet med sju länder avslutas i december 2013. Hundratals etablerade relationer formar nu ett kluster av kunskap och kontakter – en plattform för fortsatt samarbete efter biståndet. Välkommen till en dag av erfarenhetsutbyte och nätverkande med fokus på drivkrafter för hållbart samarbete. En dag för att fira resultat av aktörssamverkan!

Swedish bilateral cooperation with seven countries will be finalized and come to an end in December 2013. Hundreds of established relationships now form a cluster of knowledge and contacts - a platform for continuous cooperation without development aid.

Since 2007, the bilateral development cooperation with Botswana, China, India, Indonesia, Namibia, South Africa and Vietnam has mainly taken the form of Partner Driven Cooperation, PDC. Today, we can look back on much successful collaboration and reflect upon results and experiences.

• Share your results and experiences from Partner Driven Cooperation.
• Network with active partners and hear their stories.
• Discuss how we can use this legacy to sustain the results and relations.

During a day of seminars we will review the performance and potential of the relations built through Partner Driven Cooperation, and highlight some of the many results achieved.

Date: December 17th 2013
