Evaluation of the Special Grant for Environment and Development
Background In the Parliamentary Bill St.prp. no 1 1983-84, the Norwegian Ministry of Development Cooperation (the Ministry) introduced a Special Grant for Environment and Development (the Grant), together with another special grant, the Women's Grant. The justification was the great need in developing countries to strengthen professional competence within the environment and to finance direct environmental activities. The Grant was a provisional arrangement on a trial basis. The ultimate objective was to integrate environmental considerations and concerns into normal aid channels.
