Sweden to channel more ODA through Swedish civil society organizations

Swedish Minister for International Development, Peter Ericsson, has announced that US$6 million (SEK50 million) in additional funding from the 2019 official development assistance (ODA) budget will be channeled through Swedish civil society organisations (CSOs). The amount is small relative to the overall amount that is channeled through the Swedish CSOs, but is seen as an important signal of the priority given to democratic governance and participation in Swedish development cooperation.
