The OECD's Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. The policies and programmes of each DAC member are critically examined approximately once every five years. DAC peer reviews assess the performance of a given member, not just that of its development co-operation agency, and examine both policy and implementation. They take an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of the member under review.

Norway’s commitment to spend 1% of gross national income on official development assistance is supported across the political spectrum. It increasingly uses multilateral channels to promote global public goods and address global challenges. This review looks at the changes to systems, structures and capabilities that would help Norway deliver on its shifting approach to development co-operation. These include strategic oversight to align programming with Norway's overall vision and policies for sustainable development; strengthened approaches to results, knowledge and risk management; and taking a bolder approach to cross-cutting issues such as human rights, gender, climate and environment, and anti-corruption.

Norway’s results, evaluation and learning

This chapter considers how Norway plans and manages for results in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), building evidence of what works, and using this to learn and adapt. Norway would benefit from a strengthened definition of results-based management and an expanded approach to results measurement that includes the strategic and portfolio levels. While Norway’s approach to strategic evaluations is strong, there remains room to improve the quality, methodology and analysis of decentralised evaluations. Developing a formal knowledge management system would help Norway to use results for direction and learning.
