The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida)

The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) has long been committed to international forest protection and conservation endeavours and is among the largest donors in this field. It focuses in particular on strategies for combining forest conservation with sustainable forest management.

The Embassy of Sweden in Addis Abeba is implementing the regional development cooperation strategy for Africa, on behalf of Sida. It is currently providing 20 million Swedish Krona (over $2 Million USD) for more than 100 restoration projects within 30 AFR100 member countries through the Land Accelerator program. Support currently focuses on Sustainable Forest Management (SFM), forest landscape restoration and deforestation-free supply chains.

AFR100 is an element in important international agreements on the restoration of forest landscapes, which are supported by Sweden.
