Training for a Career in International Development
As an active and committed partner in international development, it is essential for Sweden to build and maintain a highly qualified cadre of professionals that can serve in Sweden's bilateral international cooperation agency, Sida, as well as in international development agencies. This evaluation takes a look at four such programmes administered and funded by Sida. All of them provide training and work opportunities abroad in international development organizations for young Swedish professionals. The results of this evaluation will be used to report on the results of the resource base programmes, review the mechanism for the guidance and allocation of resources, and, if called for, improve them. The evaluation will also provide important input into a review of the resource base programmes that Sida's management has requested the Team for Resource Base Development to undertake in 2009.
