Donor conference for Nigeria and the Lake Chad Region: Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende announced today that Norway will provide NOK 729 million in aid to north-eastern Nigeria and the Lake Chad region in 2017. This area has been hard hit by Boko Haram's campaign of terror, poverty, lack of development and climate change.
‘The world’s greatest refugee crisis is unfolding in Syria and the neighbouring countries. The Government will once again step up its effort to alleviate suffering and help to ensure the best possible protection of the civilian population. We have therefore proposed an increase in humanitarian support for the Syria crisis of NOK 500 million,’ said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.
