Forum for Women and Development (FOKUS) in Norway
FOKUS is a resource centre for international women's issues and a co-ordinating organ for women's organisations (NGOs) in Norway. The goal is to strengthen co-operation between women’s organisations in Norway in their international involvement and co-operation, contribute to the social, economic and political empowerment of women through international project co-operation and exchange of knowledge, and raising awareness on the situation of women in a global perspective through public relations and information activities. FOKUS is financially supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) through framework agreements for information and grant provision.
