The Icelandic International Development Agency (ICEIDA) is an autonomous agency under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iceland and is responsible for the implementation of official Icelandic bilateral development cooperation.
ICEIDA operates in three countries – Malawi, Mozambique and Uganda – in the areas of fisheries, education, energy, health, and water and sanitation. It emphasizes sustainable social and economic development with gender equality, human rights, democracy and environmental sustainability as a frame of reference.
The aim of Icelandic development cooperation is to promote the reduction of poverty, increased economic growth and social development, sustainable use of natural resources and environmental issues.
ICEIDA’s support mainly consists of strengthening infrastructure and the basic pillars of society, focusing on human capital, education and capacity building.
