4th Overall Contributions

Norway is a strong supporter of UNFPA’s mandate, with an emphasis on women’s health, sexual and reproductive rights, and freedom from violence. The Government of Norway upholds its dedication to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls through targeted funding in gender initiatives, and by mainstreaming gender-inclusive programmes across its international assistance policies and objectives.

Norway prioritizes support to UNFPA’s core funding, which is considered the most efficient investment in the organization as it enables long-term planning, flexible responses to emerging priorities, and sustainable support for human rights-based programmes that improve the lives of women and young people in developing countries.

Norway supports UNFPA’s efforts to promote rights-based adolescent and youth development; programmes to end child marriage and teenage pregnancies; initiatives that enhance reproductive health and rights; and efforts to combat gender-based violence, including in humanitarian settings. Funding from Norway also supports UNFPA Supplies and the Joint Programme on Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting

Ine Eriksen Søreide, Minister of Foreign Affairs
UNFPA has a unique global role in promoting universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights. UNFPA’s mandate is more important than ever. Norway remains a committed partner. We thank the UNFPA for the important role the organization plays in saving and improving people’s lives.
Ine Eriksen Søreide, Minister of Foreign Affairs
