Strategy for Sweden’s development cooperation with South Sudan 2018–2022


The objective of Sweden’s international development cooperation is to create opportunities for people who live in poverty and oppression to improve their living conditions. Development cooperation will be based on the principles of aid and development effectiveness, and the new agreements reached by the international community in 2015: the 2030 Agenda, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the Paris Agreement.


Within the framework of this strategy, Sweden's development cooperation with South Sudan will contribute to a peaceful and inclusive society, improved access to equitable and gender-equal health and education services, and improved living conditions for people living in poverty. The strategy will apply for the period 2018–2022 and provide a total of SEK 1 500 million.
