In April 2009, the Swedish Cabinet approved new regulations regarding development loans and guarantees. At the same time, the Cabinet also adopted a new strategy for environmental loans and guarantees for the period 2009 – 2011. The purpose of the financing with development loans is to increase access to risk capital for investments targeted at environmental problems and effects of climate change. 

The main purpose of this evaluation was to look into the utility/clarity of the Strategy and to propose measures for making a revised strategy better set for

  1. achieving the overarching objectives as presented in the current Strategy, and
  2. improving the knowledge and understanding among Sida staff and, through this, the use of the new financial tool.
