Evaluation reports and Annual reports

Evaluation Activities of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Until February 2004, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs had an Evaluation Section, which was responsible for initiating and administrating evaluations of Norwegian development assistance and foreign policy. The Evaluation Section was then transferred to Norad and its mandate adjusted so that it now covers development policy and humanitarian aid. The research is undertaken by external consultants. All evaluations are concluded with a published report.

Most reports are in English, except when the listed title appears in other languages.

Below is a list of the reports published in the Foreign Ministry’s evaluation series up to the spring of 2004. More recent reports are published in Norad’s evaluation series ( see Norad’s website).

Reports may be ordered by e-mail.
