Editorial: Shit happens!

The third newsletter from NorWatch deals entirely with Norwegian fisheries interests in Africa. In two of the projects the Norwegian interests are out, whereas the third project still ongoing seems to have the opposite effect of what was initially intended.

The third newsletter from NorWatch deals entirely with Norwegian fisheries interests in Africa. In two of the projects the Norwegian interests are out, whereas the third project still ongoing seems to have the opposite effect of what was initially intended.

Ticon Isolering has procured freezing facilities for projects around the globe, many of which have NORAD support. In the case of Uganda, which is covered in this newsletter, NORAD was also responsible for the feasibility studies which were the basis for contributions to the project.

But the export oriented fishery in Lake Victoria seems to have had fatal consequences for the local population, diametrically opposed to NORAD's intentions.

When this is revealed, the only comment NORAD had is «things like this happens». As a financial institution there is nothing they can do with this now, after the event.

Norwegian companies which involve themselves in projects approved by NORAD, are thus left entirely to themselves when the project is started.

Kristelig Folkeparti (the Christian Democrats) recently presented an alternative to the Parliamentary Development Aid bill, no. 19. In this, the problems around the export oriented fishery in Lake Victoria was raised, without any reference to Norwegian companies or Norwegian foreign aid policy. The Future in Our Hands is of the opinion that it is crucial that such projects are followed up from the Norwegian side, during the investigative as well as operative phase, in the companies and not least of all, in NORAD.
