The purpose of this evaluation is to help strengthen Norway's efforts against corruption.

The evaluation has looked at the four main focus areas for Norway's anti-corruption work:

  • Upholding the principle of zero tolerance against corruption in Norwegian development assistance.

  • Addressing AC as a cross-cutting concern.

  • Promoting AC as a distinct component of Norway’s development assistance through programmes, projects and partner dialogue.

  • Strengthening international norms and standards against corruption.

The evaluation is based on document studies, interviews, a survey sent to employees in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at selected embassies and in Norad, as well as five case studies on zero tolerance, climate and forestry, health, Somalia and global anti-corruption work, respectively.

The team has conducted field trips to Jakarta, Nairobi and Mogadishu, Geneva, Basel, New York and Bergen, in addition to a number of meetings and interviews in Oslo.
