Macroeconomics and poverty reduction
Poverty reduction is an overall goal in development assistance. A national strategy for poverty reduction and economic development normally underpins budget support to partner countries.
Tax for Development
The purpose of the Tax for Development programme is to contribute to improved tax systems and increased tax revenues in developing countries.
Public Financial Management
Good public financial management systems are important for poverty reduction.
When circumstances are appropriate, budget support can be the most effective way to support a developing country's fight against poverty.
Statistics for Development
Norway supports efforts to strengthen statistical systems as a means to strengthening the basis for evidence based policy making and good governance in our partner countries.
Norwegian support to World Bank Trust Funds
