To implement its strategies and programs, Sida relies on a variety of partners — including government agencies, international organizations and the private sector. Civil society groups, however, play an especially prominent role in carrying out the agency’s development work.
Sida’s support to CSOs is channeled through 18 framework organizations which benefit from predictable, long-term financing. The framework organizations are then responsible for disbursing grants to hundreds of Swedish and non-Swedish partners, in compliance with Sida’s requirements and conditions.
Despite being the gatekeepers of Sida’s partnerships with CSOs across the globe, many of these framework organizations remain relatively unknown. So who are Sida’s framework organizations, what do they do, and who do they partner with? Devex decided to take a closer look.
