A new and more ambitious climate policy for Norway

The Norwegian government suggests that Norway by 2030 reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 per cent compared to the 1990 level. The EU is leading the way in the efforts to combat anthropogenic climate change. The Norwegian government aims for Norway to join the EU 2030 framework for climate policies in order for Norway and the EU to jointly fulfil their climate targets.

Child mortality must be further reduced

"Since 2000, the Vaccine Alliance Gavi has helped to vaccinate 500 million children and prevent six million deaths. Despite this, 1.5 million children are still dying every year from diseases that could easily be prevented. We must therefore intensify our efforts so that even more children are vaccinated and more children survive preventable diseases," said Prime Minister Erna Solberg at Gavi’s pledging conference in Berlin today.

Enhancing financing for global education

Norway and the World Bank have launched Results in Education for All Children (REACH) – a new trust fund to boost financing for education in low-income countries. Education is an important way out of poverty, and good quality education services need to be available in all countries. With this in view, it is important that financing is more closely linked to results. The new trust fund was launched by World Bank President Jim Kim and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the World Economic Forum in Davos today.
