Strategy for Sweden’s development cooperation with Palestine 2020–2024


The objective of Sweden’s international development cooperation is to create conditions to improve the lives of people living in poverty and oppression. Development cooperation will be based on the principles of aid and development effectiveness, the 2030 Agenda, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the Paris Agreement.


The strategy applies in 2020–2024 and provides a total of SEK 1.5 billion, of which SEK 1.46 billion is intended for the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and SEK 40 million for the Folke Bernadotte Academy.

The strategy governs the use of funds under appropriation item 17 ‘Middle East and North Africa’ in the appropriation directions for Sida for each budget year, and funds under appropriation item 4 ‘Development Cooperation’ in the appropriation directions for the Folke Bernadotte Academy for each budget year.
