Partnership with Sida

As a Sida partner you have an important role in implementing development cooperation. We work with a wide range of partners from different segments of society. In this section you'll find information on how to cooperate with Sida, as well as tools to use in your daily work.

Do you want to cooperate with Sida?

Sida's selection of partners follows an established process. What initiative or programme Sida can support, and during what period, is determined by strategies decided by the Swedish government.

Our partners

Sida works with a wide range of partners from different sectors of society. We continuously learn from experiences with our cooperation partners and evaluate our partner portfolio to deliver the best possible assistance in each context.

Civil society organisations

A significant part of Sweden’s development assistance is carried out in cooperation with civil society organisations in our partner countries. Sida also has a number of strategic partners.

Research cooperation

Sida supports research in and by low-income countries to reduce poverty and build sustainable societies. Our partners are bilateral, regional and global research institutions and research-supporting organisations.

Private sector

Sida is partnering with companies and private sector organisations that contribute to economic, social and environmental sustainable development.

Public sector

Swedish public agencies are an important and in-demand actor in development cooperation. There are many opportunities for Swedish public agencies to get involved and contribute to strengthening their counterparts in a partner country.

Multilateral organisations

Through multilateral cooperation Sida contributes to reducing poverty within Sweden’s priority thematic areas. Multilateral cooperation also makes it possible for Sweden to contribute to development in countries without bilateral cooperation.

Methods and materials

Sida continuously develops tools and methodological materials to guide our staff. They can also be useful for Sida partners and other stakeholders. See our toolboxes for poverty, gender, environment and peace and conflict.

Bilden består av fyra cirklar i olika storlek som är placerade i varandra. I mitten av bilden finns den minsta cirkeln, det är modellens mittpunkt. Inuti den lilla cirkeln står det Vem med mörk text. Den lilla cirkeln utgör även en kombinerad bas för kvinno- och manstecknet. Kvinnans korstecken pekar nedåt från cirkeln och mannens pil pekar snett uppåt höger från cirkeln. Den lilla cirkeln är placerad mitt i en annan större cirkel. Denna större cirkel är uppdelad i fyra lika stora bitar, där varje bit pekar inåt mot den lilla cirkeln. Var och en av dessa bitar representerar de fyra dimensionerna av fattigdom. Den inre lilla cirkeln och den större cirkeln omges av två yttre ringar. ”Hur and Varför” står skrivet på fyra ställen i den första yttre ringen. Den yttersta ringen representerar de fyra olika kontexterna i en multidimensionell fattigdomsanalys: Konflikt och fred kontext, Miljökontext, Ekonomisk och social kontext samt Politisk and Institutionell kontext, vilka alla står skrivna i den yttersta ringen.
