Allocating Norway's official development assistance

Norway has a long track record of setting generous aid targets. In 2012, Norway was the tenth largest donor by volume as well as the third most generous, allocating 0.93% (or USD 4.8 billion) of its GNI as ODA. Norway has managed to nearly hit its aid targets every year thanks to solid public and political support for development co-operation and a strong economy. As its ODA budgets are determined by a percentage of GNI, Norway’s steadily growing economy is likely to result in higher levels of aid in future years. Yet while its overall ODA volume has been fairly predictable, allocations to target channels and countries have been less so, mainly as a result of a lack of strategic yearly planning at both central and at country levels.
