Finland's support to the South African anti-apartheid movement was transformed into development cooperation in 1995. The objective was to assist South Africa's efforts in building a socially and economically more inclusive and equal society. Since then more than 80 million Euros worth of bilateral programmes using a wide range of Finnish development cooperation instruments have been carried out. South African institutions are responsible for the implementation of the programmes, with Finnish support adding value by building capacity and enhancing effectiveness. South African systems are used whenever possible.
