Norway increases support to stabilize crisis-affected countries

Norway has allocated NOK835 million (US$101 million) to stabilize countries affected by conflict and crisis in its 2020 budget proposal, an increase of NOK 1230 million (US$16 million) from this year’s budget. The increased funding will primarily be used to provide long-term support for Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, with the aim of strengthening efforts to promote stability, prevent conflict, reduce fragility, and increase resilience at the local level. Some of the funding will go towards efforts to address the root causes of migration.
