UNDP’s Oslo Governance Centre (OGC), established in 2002 is based in Norway. It works closely with UNDP central and regional bureaus in New York headquarters and other relevant UN bodies in strengthening the overall analytical and learning ability in the area of governance and peacebuilding. The OGC areas of work are related to human development, democratic governance and conflict prevention to support policy development and applied research, with an overarching focus on democratic governance and peacebuilding in crisis, conflict and transitional contexts. The Centre greatly values its partnership with its host government Norway. The OGC office is set up under shared resources and arrangements with the host government.
