This framework gives Sida possibility to call off assignments in the field of education and skills development for a volume of up to 250 000 USD per call off; there is no limit to the total value of the framework. The framework has only been concluded with one contract – NIRAS Sweden AB – which gives NIRAS Sweden AB the status of a dialogue partner with Sida in its development of initiatives in the field of education and skills development.
Specific emphasis is put on education and skills development, including strategies to promote girls’ education, education for sustainable development (ESD), capacity building, democracy, human rights based approaches, inclusive education, equality and equity issues. About one third of Sida's overall support to education and skills development is allocated to education initiatives that have improved gender equality as their main purpose.
