Working languages: 

The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) is a directorate under the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

Norad's strategy towards 2010 states that Norad:

  • aims to be the centre of expertise for evaluation, quality assurance and dissemination of the results of Norwegian development cooperation, jointly with partners in Norway, developing countries and the international community
  • will ensure that the goals of Norway's development policy are achieved by providing advice and support to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Norwegian foreign service missions
  • will administer the agency's grant schemes so that development assistance provided through Norwegian and international partners contributes effectively to poverty reduction

These goals will be achieved on the foundation of Norad's current competencies, through highly qualified staff, a flexible and practical organisation, good administrative support functions and a working environment characterised by transparency, respect, equality, responsibility and quality.

While production continue to stagnate or dwindle in many parts of Sub Saharan Africa, there is a greater opportunity to work towards reversing the trend. Our believe that we can actually optimize production with lesser natural resource exploitation is the reason we have the adopted Landscapes Approach. Land degradation, water scarcity and loss of biodiversity are three important aspects that support supply chain production. We can only sustain production if we conserve and rehabilitate our landscapes.
