The purpose of this review is to assist Norwegian People's Aid in adapting its Angola programme to reach the objectives it has set for the period from 2004 to 2007. NPA presently works in five provinces and employs more than 550 persons in Angola, and the country programme has an annual budget of approximately 60 million NOK. The NPA Angola strategy for 2004-2007 focuses on land and resource rights and democratic rights and participation, and the work is organised within two programmes: mine action (approximately 85 percent of financial resources) and development (15 percent). The review concludes that NPA is on track towards reaching many of the goals it has identified for its work in Angola during the period in question. We commend NPA Angola for its professionalism, innovation, and ambition. An important reason why some goals are still far from being reached is, however, that they are very ambitious - and that the number of goals is quite high. Concentrating activities is therefore a key recommendation.
