The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) is inviting civil society organisations (CSOs) to submit their expression of interest for partnership and funding opportunities starting 2025.

Purpose and Objectives:

  • Through this call for expression of interest, Sida initiates a process which aims to ensure that the objectives of the Strategy for Sweden’s Development Cooperation with Civil Society (the CSO Strategy) are met.
  • Purpose: Strengthen civil society organisations in developing countries, enhancing their opportunity and capacity to create better living conditions for people living in poverty and oppression.
  • Objectives:
    1. Strengthened Capacity of Civil Society in Developing Countries:
      • Increased capacity for civil society and its target groups in matters concerning democracy, human rights, rule of law, gender equality, free market and property rights, accountability, tolerance, anti-corruption, and/or peace and security.
      • Increased effectiveness, local anchoring, and transparency of civil society actors.
    2. An Enabling Environment for Civil Society in Developing Countries:
      • Strengthened space for an independent and pluralistic civil society.
      • Improved conditions for dialogue and collaboration within civil society, and between civil society and other actors.
      • Improved conditions for civil society actors to act independently and diversify their financing.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The call is open to civil society organisations conducting long-term development cooperation relevant to the objectives in the current Swedish strategy for development cooperation with civil society.
  • Eligible Categories of CSOs:
    • Organisations based and operating directly in countries eligible for official development assistance (ODA countries).
    • Organisations forwarding funds to civil society actors in ODA countries.
    • Organisations not based in an ODA country and focusing on the strategy objective "an enabling environment for civil society in developing countries".

Requirements:

  • CSOs must submit their expression of interest through Sida’s digital form.
  • Organisations can at most be included in two different expressions of interest.
  • For organisations that are part of the same global or international federation, only one organisation can pass the first step of the evaluation process.
  • Organisations outside ODA countries must be able to contribute with own funding corresponding to 15 per cent of Sida's contribution. For organisations forwarding funds this must amount to a minimum of USD 500 000.
