Talks on the development assistance budget for 2021

Aid targets and the role of development cooperation have been discussed extensively recently. At the same time, we see the importance of short- and long-term support worldwide as a result of Covid-19, the effects of climate change, declining democratic spaces and the inconceivable lack of gender equality. How is this and much more reflected in the 2021 development assistance budget?

Welcome to a conversation with the Minister for International Development Cooperation Peter Eriksson and the Secretary of State for International Development Cooperation Per Olsson Fridh. The purpose of the conversation is to present and discuss development issues in the government budget bill for 2021Anna Blücher, Vice Chairman of FUF, will moderate the discussion where participants are invited to ask questions about the government's priorities in the area of ​​development.

A close dialogue between the government, civil society, business and the general public enables a mutual exchange of experience and collaboration between different sectors and thematic areas. Development cooperation must work catalytically, to mobilize resources and commitment and create conditions for reducing poverty in the world.

"The world is facing great challenges. We are seeing a weakened democracy globally, at the same time as climate change is becoming increasingly acute and poverty seems to be taking hold in parts of Africa. Sweden's development assistance must strengthen democracy and contribute to the development of a more sustainable and peaceful world. ” - Peter Eriksson

The call is made via Zoom. Pre-registration is required and there is a limited number of places. Registration closes at 23:55 on October 13th.
