Country and regional strategy from Ministry for Foreign Affairs

Strategy for Sweden’s development cooperation with Uganda 2018–2023 Reference No.: UD2018/11658/AF



The objective of Sweden's international development cooperation is to create opportunities for people living 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 Uganda will contribute to greater respect for human rights and the rule of law, a stronger democracy and greater gender equality, environmentally and climate-resilient sustainable development, and equitable and good health. The strategy will apply in 2018–2023 and provides a total of SEK 2 400 million.
