The Knowledge Bank was formally established in March 2018 as a department within Norad. The Knowledge Bank aims to coordinate and strengthen technical cooperation and sharing of knowledge in areas where Norway has particular competencies or sought after expertise. The objective is to strengthen the competency and capacity of public administration in Norway’s partner countries. To achieve this the Knowledge Bank cooperates with a range of Norwegian public institutions: Nine ministries, 16 directorates and government agencies, and 11 higher education institutions.
Furthermore, the Knowledge Bank also strives to increase support to south-south cooperation. It does this by promoting technical cooperation between countries in the South. The explicit goal is to increase the transfer of knowledge and competence between Norwegian partner countries through support to triangular cooperation.
The Knowledge Bank has commissioned this report as an input to how south-south/triangular cooperation can be further strengthened in the programmes implemented. The purpose is to provide the Knowledge Bank with a necessary understanding of best practices derived from experiences and research on south-south cooperation, and to propose how the Knowledge Bank can meet the goal of increased triangular cooperation.
