About the partnership
NORRAG hosts the backstopping mandate for the SDC’s Education Network. The Education Network brings together a community of practitioners and experts working in the field of education from different places all around the world. The aim of this platform is to create a common virtual space, fostering an exchange of experience, best practices, tools and dialogue on open questions. It provides access to discussions, news, information, documentation and project examples on priority thematic areas of SDC’s involvement in education.
NORRAG has been supported since 1991 by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) through its Education Network, and the SDC is a source of core funding for NORRAG’s programmes.
