Thematic breakdown of the Swiss contribution
The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) are responsible for the implementation of cohesion-related projects. Projects in the priority area of vocational education and training are implemented in close cooperation with the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI). The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) is responsible for implementing projects in the field of migration.
Switzerland's estimated administrative expenditures over ten years represent 5% of the total amount of Switzerland's contribution (CHF 1.302 billion). An additional CHF 22 million has been earmarked for institutions/organisations outside the Federal Administration which contribute their Swiss expertise to the projects. The aim here is to bolster bilateral relations with partner countries, provide the necessary specialist know-how and ensure both the quality and sustainability of the projects and programmes.
