Some Results of Swedish Development Cooperation 2016
In Uganda, the work for children’s rights resulted in the adoption of a national policy against violence in schools. It is now used in 560 schools in 28 districts.
In South Sudan, Sida’s support contributed to over 25 000 childbirths being assisted by trained staff.
Swedish humanitarian aid provided protection and support to people affected by natural disasters or conflicts in 56 countries and regions.
This report shares findings from a two-year evaluation of the Strategy for Support via Swedish Civil Society Organisations 2010-2014 (henceforth referred to as the Swedish CS Strategy) as implemented by selected Swedish civil society ‘framework organisations’ (SFOs) and their national partners in three countries – Nicaragua,
Pakistan and Uganda. The evaluation was carried out by a consortium of three organisations in two rounds of fieldwork between March 2013 and October 2014.
PURPOSE OF THE EVALUATION
Increased possibilities for citizens to express their opinions, better access to legal services and more investigated human rights complaints are some of the results of Swedish cooperation with Uganda in recent years. Now Sweden renews its commitment to strengthening democracy and human rights.
The Swedish Embassy in Kampala has committed an additional 5,3 million Euros in the coming two years to a broad fund, which in turn conveys funds to a hundred organizations working to strengthen democracy, human rights, peace-building and freedom of expression.
Answering the UN's annual appeals for different
countries and regions, Sida has decided to allocate EUR 36.7 million to
alleviate crises in about 20 countries.
A positive change since last year is that Sudan, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo have all initiated peace processes, even though the humanitarian situation remains very serious. Apart from armed conflict, HIV/AIDS represents the biggest threat to development.
Sida has just decided to allocate nearly EUR 49,1 million for disaster measures in reply to the United Nation's annual requests for aid regarding different countries and regions.
