This DAC peer reviews of Sweden assesses its overall development co-operation performance, examining both policy and implementation. It takes an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of the country under review.


Sweden's development co-operation delivery and partnerships

Indicator: These processes support quality aid as defined in Busan While Sweden is dedicated to improving its aid in line with the Paris, Accra and Busan aid effectiveness commitments, it has fallen short of meeting some of them. Sweden has met the Busan commitment on multi-year predictability and is planning to strengthen its performance further in this area. However, it failed to meet the Paris commitment on in-year predictability. On alignment, Sweden also fell far short of meeting the indicative target for aligning its aid with partner country’s national priorities, though it did meet the target for use of partner country systems. Sweden uses a mix of aid instruments, which are adjusted to match partner countries’ needs and capacity as well as risks and Sida’s new Contribution Management System should enhance its capacity for programme and risk management. Sweden has reported, until recently, high shares of untied aid. Finally, Sweden has improved the way it communicates with its partners on conditionality, meeting the 2009 DAC recommendation in this area.
