What is SwedBio and what does Sida want to do with it? - Response
Thorsten Celander , Anders Fahlén
On a general level, the support NGOs within the Collaborative Programme is regarded relevant by the implementing NGOs. Yet, the programme design issues have been confusing for the Collaborative Programme as SwedBio has introduced additional justifications, various rationales and criteria's over time. The component, Integration of biodiversity in Swedish international development cooperation, has been addressed by assessing the impact within Sida in particular, and has resulted in mixed impressions. The third component, International methods- and policy development, has been rather successful.
