Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) works under the directives of the Swedish Parliament and Government to reduce poverty in the world. The overall goal of Swedish development cooperation is to contribute to making it possible for poor people to improve their living conditions. Sida is managed by a governing board with full responsibility.   How we are governed: Sida is an authority under the jurisdiction of the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The Swedish government manages our operations and we perform the assignments we receive to achieve the targets of Sweden's development assistance policy. Sweden’s development aid budget for 2011 totalled about SEK 35,2 billion. About SEK 17,5 billion of this is allocated to Sida. The remainder principally goes through the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.    How we operate: Swedish development cooperation is part of a global cooperation in which Sweden is one of many international participants. In order to carry out its work Sida cooperates with Swedish government agencies, organisations and associations and international bodies like the UN, the EU and the World Bank. A total of 16 Swedish organisations currently have framework agreements with Sida, This includes organisations such as Africa Groups of Sweden, Diakonia, the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, Save the Children Sweden, the Church of Sweden and the World Wildlife Fund for nature. In addition, Sida also has agreements with a number of Swedish government agencies. The aim is for their expertise and experience to be of use in partner countries. Sida also cooperates with other countries’ development aid agencies. In addition, Sida cooperates with international agencies like the UN, the EU and the World Bank.   Five important fields to reduce poverty: The overall target of Sweden’s development assistance is to ensure that those in poverty have the ability to improve their living conditions. Sida has divided its work into five areas as follows: • Democracy, equality and human rights • Economic development • Knowledge, health and social development • Sustainable development • Human security   Regions we work in: -Africa -Asia -Europe -Latin America
