In order to achieve this, emphasis will be put on increased competence and knowledge within the organisations and networks, as well as increased cooperation across national boundaries.
The support is granted within the framework of current policy guidelines, particularly the annual budget proposition (Proposition No. 1 to the Storting). Support is subject to the annual national budget allocations.
The target group for the scheme is international organisations and networks excluding UN-organisations and which are primarily affiliated with civil society.
