Norway is viewed by many as a “land of privilege” - by virtue of our political stability, welfare system, and abundance of natural resources. At the same time, many individuals and groups within our society still face barriers to opportunities and societal inclusion.
Norway is committed to the Paris Agreement, which stresses that the green transition also needs to be a socially just transition.
