The Knowledge Bank
The mission of the programmes within the department is to strengthen capacity and competency in the aid administration in our partner countries. The primary target groups are the govern¬ment institutions in Norway’s partnering coun¬tries, however, actors in civil so¬ciety also have a critical role in contributing to the achievement of our objectives. The Knowledge Bank will compile expertise and contribute to increased competency within knowledge transfer as a method, as well as facilitate the sharing of these across the various programmes.
The programmes currently included in The Knowledge Bank are Oil for Development (OfD), Fish for Development (FfD), Tax for Development (TfD), Cooperation on Statistics, The Norwegian Programme for Capacity Development in Higher Education and Research for Development (NORHED), Innovation, Gender for Development (LIKE) and Institutional cooperation within clean energy.
