Building capacity in societies through research and knowledge is probably more urgently needed than ever. The global problems facing humankind articulated in Agenda 2030 need global awareness and the solutions require commitment, inclusion and cooperation within and between politics, policy and the research society. Sweden has a long experience in supporting research cooperation and development research in partner countries. The overall aim is to strengthen research of high quality and of relevance to poverty reduction and sustainable development with a primary focus on low-income countries and regions.
