International Co-operation

Norway has continued to play a significant role in promoting international environmental co-operation bilaterally, regionally and globally. The country has positively contributed to international negotiations on climate change, marine environment protection and chemicals. Reducing environmental impacts in sea waters of oil and gas extraction, shipping activities and fisheries are some of the challenges that Norway has to address in co-operation with other countries. Norway is setting the standard in development assistance with a high rate of per GNI financial aid and significant support to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries.
