To promote green development in the region, Nordic co-operation is launching a number of projects and inviting applications for funding from others.

In line with Vision 2030, which seeks to make the Nordic Region the most sustainable and integrated region in the world, several of the projects will focus on the climate, the environment and regional partnerships. Realising Vision 2030 will depend on solutions that balance the use and protection of natural resources on land and at sea and make development sustainable. The new projects help promote the green transition of the Nordic societies, carbon neutrality and a sustainable, circular and bio-based economy. Some of those accepting applications up to 4 June deal with biological diversity, improvements to the marine and coastal environment, research on air pollution, reducing and preventing damage from substances that are hazardous to health and the environment.

Halt the loss of biological diversity

Every year, the Nordic Working Group on Biological Diversity (NBM) funds Nordic co-operation projects that help halt the loss of biological diversity. It is now accepting applications for projects in 2022 relevant to its twin priorities – biodiversity and social sustainability. The deadline is 4 June.

Options for improving the Nordic marine and coastal environment

Right now, projects designed to look at opportunities to improve the Nordic marine and coastal environment can apply for funding. For example, projects to investigate the environmental impact of the offshore industry, to develop new methods of monitoring the marine environment or to study acidification and temperature rises in the sea. The deadline is 4 June.
