On April 1, 2021, the Swedish government commissioned the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) to develop a foundation for its new development cooperation strategy with Zimbabwe for 2022-2026.

The strategy will focus on strengthening democracy and gender equality as well as reducing poverty through inclusive economic development. The strategy will additionally address issues related to human rights violations, the rule of law, environmental degradation, and the climate crisis.

Sida has also been requested to explore possibilities of expanding efforts in the area of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
