Norad’s communications department answers questions regarding Norwegian development aid.

Norad – the directorate of development cooperation – administers the majority of Norway’s long term development aid. Last year, Norwegian aid amounted to a total of 40.1 billion NOK, and Norad administers around half.

Statistics regarding Nowegian aid may be found here.

Norad’s strategy, operations, and organization are founded on the UN’s sustainability targets. We are happy to answer questions regarding Norwegian long term development aid, global development, climate and environment, and questions regarding the UN’’s international sustainability goals.

We work with developing countries the world over, and our experts have broad knowledge and experience from the countries we work with. For information regarding humanitarian and emergency aid, please contact the Norwegian ministry of foreign affairs.
