Sweden increases support for democratic reforms in Sudan

On December 5, 2019, the Swedish government approved an increase of its allocation for Sudan over the next three years by SEK 400 million (US$41 million) to a total of SEK 1.6 billion (US$164 million) for the period of 2018- 2022. The main purpose of this increase was to support the implementation of the new government’s comprehensive reform agenda, aimed at strengthening democracy, the rule of law, human rights, and peacebuilding in Sudan.

The three main focus areas for Sweden's development cooperation strategy for Sudan are sustainable peace; human rights, democracy, and the rule of law; and environment, climate, agriculture, and energy.
