The initiative aims at supporting actors for change, individuals, groups and civil society organisations working for democratisation and freedom of expression.
Sida invites eligible organisations to submit a Concept Note for projects which might be considered under this support mechanism.
The Government now conducts a three-year initiative to support actors for change so as to strengthen democracy and freedom of expression.
This initiative supplements and strengthens the Government‟s other development cooperation for democracy, the rule of law and human rights.
It targets intergovernmental organisations, private individuals, groups or civil society organisations, at local, national, regional and global levels alike, and attends to threats against democracy and freedom of expression, and restrictions on the freedoms and rights of women and men.
All DAC-classified developing countries can apply.
