How development aid money is used

The money the Swedish Research Council receives to fund development research comes from Sweden’s budget for international development aid. We report continuously to both the OECD and the Swedish website openaid.se about the research projects this money is funding.

We report to OECD/DAC

To be transparent about how we use development aid money, we report continuously to the OECD’s development committee, DAC (Development Assistance Committee). One of the tasks of DAC is to work towards development collaboration for sustainable development, to fight against poverty and for increased living standards in development areas.

We report factors such as what research fields the projects we fund belong to, and for which countries the research is relevant.

We report to openaid.se

Openaid.se is the government’s web-based information service about Sweden’s development aid. The information on the website is based on open government agency data.

At openaid.se, you can find all the projects within development research that have received funding from us.

What is development aid, and which countries can receive it?

DAC has defined what is meant by development aid, known as ODA (Official Development Assistance), and which countries are entitled to development aid.
