Status Report 2021

Europe is facing enormous challenges. Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine is in its third year and the humanitarian consequences are devastating. The war in Ukraine is the greatest threat to European security and prosperity today. We will stand by and support Ukraine for as long as it takes.

In addition, we are contending with the accelerated pace of climate change and environmental degradation. At the same time, we must not lose sight of other key issues for Europe: the importance of social inclusion, poverty reduction and the transition to a sustainable climate-neutral economy. We must also continue our efforts to strengthen relations across borders, develop competence and innovation, and safeguard good governance, respect for human rights and a rules-based international order. This is the best way to build thriving, peaceful societies and the best way to prevent conflict and war.

The EEA and Norway Grants have a key role to play in this context. With support provided under the Grants scheme, we are helping to defend the fundamental values of democracy, good governance and the rule of law.
