Accountability reports

Every four years, the strategic focus of Switzerland's international cooperation is renewed and set out in a dispatch which the Federal Council submits to Parliament for approval.

At the end of the four-year dispatch period, the SDC publishes a report summarising the results and challenges for Switzerland's international cooperation during that period. This report covers the work of the SDC, SECO and the peacebuilding interventions of the Human Security Division (HSD) since the start of the period 2017–20.

Among other things, these reports account for the use made of Switzerland's five framework credits for international cooperation.

In February 2020, the Federal Council submitted the final report on the implementation of the dispatch on international cooperation 2017-20 to Parliament.
