Flows: Norway was the 11th biggest donor to Guatemala in 2011, committing USD 11.53 million in grants and equity investments

Programme aimed at:
Human rights
Sustainable use of natural resources
Priority Programme
- a joint UN-led programme supports the advocacy efforts of the indigenous communities for an equal and fair justice system (OHCHR), the right to bilingual and intercultural education (UNICEF), and autonomous political rights and representation (UNDP).
Organisation & Management
The Embassy in Guatemala administers:
Country activities
Regional activities for Central America
Effectively manage programmes by concentrating its assistance on a few activities.

Flexible and decentralised, but manages only a small share of ODA to Guatemala
Summary Considerations
Norway's programme is delivered through well-tailored partnerships and administered by highly competent staff.
Norway could take a more whole-of-government approach to improve synergies and coherence across all of its development efforts in Guatemala
Predictability and accountability of Norway's aid could be further enhanced by providing a strategic medium-term plan.
Bilateral programmes in Nicaragua and El Salvador
Deep understanding of social and political context
