This Practical Guide is a supportive document for carrying out screening and assessment of the relevant sustainability elements/key risk factors in grant management. The Guide is designed to be of practical use when identifying and documenting the effects, impacts and risks of a programme.

This Guide contains seven chapters each describing one important sustainability element. The elements are in accordance with internationally accepted standards for analysis of risk factors. The following seven sustainability elements are based on OECD/DAC's six areas of particular importance from 1992 but adjusted to existing Norwegian development policy:

  • Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment
  • Environmental and Social Sustainability and Climate and Risk Management (Climate Proofing)
  • HIV and AIDS
  • Institutional Capacity
  • Conflict Sensitivity
  • Financial Management and Corruption
  • Human Rights and Equality
