Project stories, news and features
“Every week we are invited to either television or radio to talk about climate change adaptation. People are starting to see the effects on a daily basis. Now society needs to act,” says project leader Gil Penha-Lopes.
“The structure of the modern society is one of the main reasons behind food insecurity. Because we don’t prioritise food in a stressful everyday life, we often eat food that don't give us the sufficient amount of energy we need. The biggest problem in Portugal is the lack of knowledge related to food."
The Financial Mechanism Office – the secretariat of the EEA and Norway Grants – is calling for bids for a Fund Operator to support the management of the EEA and Norway Grants Global Fund for Regional Cooperation.
