Hence, the development assistance for 2022 amounts to around SEK 57 billion.

For over 20 years, the Swedish Development Forum, FUF, has arranged presentations and discussions with those politically responsible for development cooperation in relation to the presentation of the development assistance budget. Following this tradition, FUF welcomes participants to a discuss with the Swedish Minister for International Development Cooperation Per Olsson Fridh and the State Secretary Janine Alm Ericson.

The discussion will be about the increasing need of humanitarian aid in the presently troubled world and Sweden’s implementation of Agenda 2030. The seminar will aslo discuss Sweden’s development assistance in relation to areas such as equality, environment and human rights. How does the Ministry for Foreign affairs work with these issues today?
