Swedish Auditor General stands by critical review of NGO aid

Sida and Swedish NGOs hit back at the Auditor General’s findings following an audit of NGO aid that identifies irregularities in 15 projects. They cite the investigation team’s lack of experience in Africa.

The Auditor General stands by the results of the review. “Such criticism is easy to make when you feel threatened," says Gina Funnemark, Audit Director at the Swedish National Audit Office to Development Today.
