FUF and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs invite you to talks about today's global challenges and the role of development assistance with the State Secretary for International Development Cooperation, Per Olsson Fridh.
For more than 20 years, FUF has arranged presentations and discussions with those politically responsible for development cooperation in connection with the presentation of the development assistance budget. This year, this will take place in connection with the spring change budget.
More people than ever live in urgent need as a result of conflicts and disasters. Climate change, with associated drought, floods or lack of fresh water, usually accelerates and affects people living in poverty the hardest. Like the climate, democracy is also a matter of destiny for our time. Today, more people live in countries with authoritarian tendencies than in countries that are making democratic progress.
Sweden's goal with development aid policy is to create better conditions for people living in poverty and oppression. When other countries reduce their support, Sweden continues to allocate one percent of GNI to development aid, but how can Sweden, through development aid policy, contribute to meeting the challenges we face?
FUF and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs invite you to a meeting with the State Secretary for International Development Cooperation, Per Olsson Fridh, to discuss the current global challenges and the role of development assistance. Lennart Wohlgemuth and Anna Sjöberg Tibblin, board member and secretary general of FUF, moderate and ask questions. There will also be time for questions from the audience. Warm welcome!
