With support from the Government of Sweden, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) is inviting organizations across Asia to submit concept notes for SEIA Sida Conference Strategic Fund, to promote informed dialogue where different groups and stakeholders can share knowledge in regional forums and other strategic events with the goal of helping to shape public policy to advance environmentally sustainable development.

The programme seeks to change mind-sets and everyday practices to ultimately benefit the citizens of the region, with particular attention to poor and marginalized groups such as, but not limited to, women, children, ethnic minorities and other environmentally vulnerable groups based on their specific contexts.

  • Environmentally sustainable development
  • Gender equality
  • Poverty reduction

Expected Outcomes
