PC to use Norwegian fund in power sector

The energy wing of the planning commission of Pakistan has prepared project proposals to avail funding under the Norwegian grant assistance programme (Phase-II) through joint collaboration with Norwegian institutes, sources said.

The purpose of the grant assistance programme is to improve capacity, competence, and competitiveness in relevant Pakistani and Norwegian institutions.

The above purpose will be achieved by matching Pakistani and Norwegian institutions for joint project development and implementation in sectors that are strategically important for Pakistan to achieve its national goals, as well as meet international commitments, and where Norway can offer cutting-edge expertise.

The programme will contribute to improve internal and external performance and enhanced technical and managerial competence mainly in public sector institutions, but not excluding non-governmental and private sector organisations in Pakistan.

While primary focus of the programme remains on capacity-building of Pakistani institutions, the programme recognises that capacity-building of the Norwegian partner institutions could also be an equally important component to create an environment for long-term and self-sustaining cooperation.

The planning and development division (P&D) of the planning commission has the overall responsibility for the administration of the programme.
