International development cooperation in Statistics Norway. Annual Report 2016

The purpose of SN’s development cooperation is to contribute to the development of good National Statistical Systems, and to improved capacity for production and use of official statistics in our partner countries.

This is done through sharing Norwegian experiences on production and use of official statistics.

SN’s development cooperation work shall keep a high professional quality, and SN as an institution shall vouch for its results. To achieve this, the work needs to be integrated in SN’s core activities, and it is SN as an institution who is responsible for ensuring quality and good results in this work.

SN’s development cooperation is mainly organised through broad based and long term institutional cooperation with sister organisations in other countries. Beyond this, SN carries out different types of technical assignments on request from Norad, The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and international organisations. This work complements our work with partner countries. It may include work such as; methodological development, data analyses, experience and documentation reports, and mapping and planning of projects with new partner countries.
