About Norad

Norad is the Norwegian agency for development cooperation. We work for the world to achieve the UN's sustainability goals.

Norad - the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation - is a professional body under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). In matters concerning Norway's climate and forestry initiative, Norad is a subordinate of the Ministry of Climate and Environment (KLD). Our work is founded on instructions and allocation letters from the Norwegian ministries.

Norad is based in Oslo and has 270 employees (2021).

Together with our partners and on behalf of Norway, Norad strives for a greener future in a world without poverty. Human rights must be respected and none left out. By way of knowledge and cooperation, we ensure that the funds of Norwegian development aid contribute to global development.

Together we move the world.
