OFD projects - Non-core countries


In 2009, OfD cooperated in a more limited way with Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Ecuador, Iraq, the Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lebanon, Mauritania, Nicaragua, the Palestinian Territory, São Tomé and Principe, South Africa, Tanzania, Vietnam and Zambia.

Cooperation with countries on a non-core basis may include seminars, exchange of delegations and limited packages of capacity building and advice. This offer can in theory be made available to a range of countries meeting the formal criteria listed in the previous chapter, but capacity constraints are in practice limiting the number of new countries receiving support. Overall feasibility, quality and timing of proposals, as well as availability of relevant Norwegian or international competence are important factors in the consideration.
