Sida pours half a billion aid crowns into Swedish land agency

Since the year 2000, Sida has poured SEK 380 million into the Swedish National Land Survey. Most of this has been channelled through NLS’s export arm, Swedesurvey.

As more contracts are put out for tender, Sida has signed a framework agreement with NLS in order to “develop a closer relation between Sida and NLS”.

So far the year-old agreement has resulted in SEK 62 million in assignments for NLS up to 2009. By the end of the decade, total Sida transfers to NLS/Swedesurvey will likely exceed half a billion crowns.
