What has Norway achieved with the EEA and Norway Grants?
Norway allocated a total of NOK 60 billion to the EEA and Norway Grants from 2004 to 2021. The grants seek to reduce economic and social disparities in the EEA and to strengthen bilateral relations between donor and recipient countries. In addition to good results in the beneficiary countries – such as support for civil society and as a counter-move against authoritarian forces – the grants show positive effects for Norway, according to the review. The report was commissioned by Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
