Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation - NORAD
The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) is a directorate under the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Its strategy for 2010 is that Norad:
- aims to be the centre of expertise for evaluation, quality assurance and dissemination of the results of development cooperation;
- ensures that the goals of Norway's development policy are achieved by providing advice and support to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and
- administers Norad’s grant schemes so that development assistance through Norway and international partners contributes effectively to poverty reduction.
Norad’s values set out how it means to live up to its strategic aim of halving world poverty by 2015. Over the next three years, it expects to have a more flexible and influential workforce in a more challenging yet supportive sphere of work. Its values include:
- ambition and determination to eliminate poverty;
- diversity and the need to balance work and private life;
- ability to work effectively with others;
- desire to listen, learn and be creative; and
- professionalism and knowledge.

The underlying idea behind Norad’s Global Campaign is simple: To achieve results by providing flexible support that allows national and local managers to address the bottlenecks that impede the attainment of outcomes.
NORAD joined the Alliance in 2006 as a development Partner.
