Media and Press

Media services are aimed at journalists interested in information about Norad’s work and Norwegian development cooperation. 

Norad’s five main tasks are aid advisory services, quality assurance and monitoring, grant programmes, communication and evaluation. Read more about Norad and our work.

Norad manages approximately 12 percent of the Norwegian development aid budget. For instance, Norad grants funding to organisations within civil society, research, higher education and industry that work with partners in in low and middle income countries. 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Norwegian embassies abroad manage most of the Norwegian development aid. Norad contributes to their work by providing expert advice in these matters. 

In matters regarding Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI), Norad reports to the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment.

Norfund - the Norwegian Investment Fund for Developing Countries and FK Norway also administer a small percentage of the development aid budget.

We will answer questions related to development cooperation issues, statistics and evaluations of Norwegian development assistance.
