Mapping Swedish Aid to Agriculture

Support to agricultural development used to be a large part of Swedish development cooperation. During recent decades, this share has decreased substantially. Or has it? Is support to the agricultural sector continuing albeit under new labels such as adaptation to climate change, market development, gender equality and others?

This study aims to map the evolution of Swedish support to agriculture during the period 2005–2020 and seek to understand what trends have prevailed during this period. The support will also be situated in relation to relevant and broader international trends. The study will be authored by researchers Ivar Virgin and Ylva Ran from the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
