Transparency commitment vis-à-vis NMFA

Published 29. Jun 2017
NRC is committed to being accountable to our staff and the people we serve. We place particular emphasis upon the importance of sharing information with them as well as the general public. Transparency is a prerequisite for accountability, and NRC is always aiming at making information about the work we do more accessible and visible.

About our partnership with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NMFA)

NRC has a long history of partnership with NMFA. Over the years we have diversified our donor base, which allows us a higher level of financial security and predictability. However, NMFA remains our largest donor, i.e. contributing 25% of our total turnover. In addition, we receive 2% of our total turnover from Norad. The partnership goes beyond receiving funds and includes dialogue on country contexts, policy issues and topics of common interest.

The Global Partnership Agreement (GPA) II, which runs from 2016-2018 represents the administrative and legal framework of our collaboration.
