Norad is introducing a scheme for strategic partnerships with large civil society organisations that meet certain criteria concerning volume, systems, capacity and competence. The Strategic Partner scheme has been adopted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and will be implemented by Norad.
Status as a strategic partner does not in itself entitle the strategic partner to grants. Strategic partners must apply for grants when grant funding is announced in competition with others.
Applications for strategic partner status may be submitted from 1 August 2023. This announcement is open-ended (no specific application deadline).
Applications may be submitted by email to: email@example.com. Kindly use "Application for strategic partnership" as subject.
