Norway launched its first NAP in 2006 and subsequently launched a revised NAP for the period 2011-2013. Its development was led by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The third NAP from Norway was released in 2015 for the period of 2015-2018.
Norway does not have a recent history of conflict, but plays an important role in international peacekeeping, humanitarian, and development organisations. As such, the NAP is focused internationally.
From a recent academic analysis: Unlike the previous NAP, the latest Norwegian NAP includes a timeframe for action but only spanning three years. It also expands the priority areas from three to five. Yet, civil society involvement in developing or monitoring the NAP is neither specified. A major difference from the previous NAP is that it includes a table for each priority area, which ensures that it specifies roles and indicators across all the sub-activities.
