Education as a public good, a fundamental human right and a key instrument in reducing poverty


Education plays a fundamental role in human, social and economic development. Investments in good quality education, especially in the education of girls, are of fundamental importance for poverty reduction and sustainable development. Education is also key to building a democratic society, inclusive economic development and promoting gender equality. Sida’s support to education amounted to SEK 846 million in 2021, corresponding to 3 percent out of Sida’s total support.
