In November 2012, Sthlm Policy Group joined Nordic Consulting Group (NCG), Norway, in conducting a study of NGOs receiving Norwegian financial support in Afghanistan. The study was commissioned by Norad and Royal Norwegian Embassy (RNE) in Kabul.

The objectives of the study included inter alia: to identify and assess the results achieved by the group of NGOs so far; support the further development of Results Based Management (RBM) approaches, including the the development of credible baseline information; and assess the degree to which the NGO interventions had been aligned with national and local priorities and processes and provided recommendations on how such alignment could be strengthened.

The team (Janne Lexow, Hannes Berts & Najib Murshed) spent two weeks in Afghanistan and assessed the results achieved by the following six NGOs: Norwegian Church Aid_(NCA),Norwegian Afghanistan Committee_(NAC), Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees_(DACAAR)Aga Khan Foundation_(AKF)Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development-(ACTED), and Norwegian Refugee Council-(NRC). The study made an important and appreciated contribution to Norway's understanding of the work of these NGOs and their contributions to development in Afghanistan.
