The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation


The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation commonly known as Norad is a directorate under the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs whose main purpose is to ensure that Norwegian development aid funds are spent in the best possible way, and to report on what works and what does not work.

Norad grants funding to organisations within civil society, research, higher education and private sector development that work with partners in poor countries.
