Measuring Impact

Target Outcome 1: Strengthen Institutions and Services

SECO strengthens the institutions and services of its partner governments. It supports them in creating favourable framework conditions for sustainable economic development. Among other things, the aim is to achieve transparent public financial management, a stable financial sector and a good basic supply of water and energy.

Target Outcome 2: More and better jobs

SECO helps entrepreneurs in its partner countries to set up and develop companies. To this end, it promotes mentoring and favourable so-called "ecosystems" for companies. Other priorities are compliance with international standards, access to capital and a favourable business environment.

Target Outcome 3: Trade and competitiveness

SECO supports institutions in its partner countries in acquiring the technical and negotiating skills necessary for integration into world trade. It also promotes the integration of producers into sustainable global value chains.

Target Outcome 4: Climate-resilient economy

Due to the consequences of climate change and urbanisation, SECO partner countries face major challenges. SECO supports them in becoming more resilient to the consequences of climate change, developing their cities sustainably and supplying people and companies with sustainably produced energy.
