Norway to allocate €21 M for food security program in Ukraine: part of funds to be used for Grain from Ukraine initiative
Norway will allocate more than €21 million to Ukraine's food security program as part of its five-year support program. Part of the funds will be allocated to the Grain from Ukraine initiative
The Norwegian government reported this on its website.
EUR 4.3 million will be allocated to the humanitarian food program Grain from Ukraine. The World Bank's Ukraine Relief, Recovery, Reconstruction and Reform Trust Fund (URTF) will receive the same amount.
Almost €12.8 million will be allocated to the World Food Program in response to its appeal for emergency assistance to Ukraine. Part of the funds will be used to clear agricultural land of mines and provide food aid to the frontline regions.
"Norway will continue to support the people of Ukraine. At the same time, we have not lost sight of other crises globally. The Nansen program is one example of how we manage to combine those efforts," said Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide.
- On November 13, Norway announced €84 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The money will be used for education, healthcare and demining.
