Sida's Help Desk for Democractic Governance & Human Rights in Africa

About the Helpdesk

The helpdesk is for Sida Africa staff (in HQ and Sub-Saharan embassies) to quickly get expert assistance in the fields of Democratic Governance and Human rights. Helpdesk assignments can be up to 10 days of consutling work- and are financed by the Africa department and therefore do not require formal decision to finance each assignment.  

The help desk is managed by FCG Sweden (the result of the merger of FCG SIPU International AB and ORGUT Consulting AB, both of which have done many assignments for Sida for many years).

Jamie Smith ( and Malin Eriksson ( will manage the helpdesk from Stockholm and will call on a team of experienced experts from around the world.

The Helpdesk will be running during the period 2017 – 2019, financed by the Sida Africa Department in Stockholm.
