Welcome to FUF-Magazine, a website from the Swedish Development Forum’s division in Lund (FUF Pop-Up Lund).
As the word itself indicates, Development Cooperation can only be successful if everyone pulls together. Multilateral organisations and global networks are an important part of the cooperation, but so are also individual nation-states. Sweden’s contribution primarily goes via Sida – the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency – which is the theme of the second edition of FUF Magazine. We will turn attention to Sida’s work in various settings, its sometimes controversial history and discuss its collaboration with business. We hope you’ll find it interesting!
