About Our Donor
The BOLD Project is funded by the Government of Norway.
The Government of Norway is a long-term key partner of and donor to the Crop Trust. This has included support for the operation of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault and funding for the recently completed 11-year Crop Wild Relatives Project and the Food Forever Initiative.
The Government of Norway has adopted a development approach aimed at achieving SDG 2 (end hunger) and responding to the threats posed by climate change, particularly in least developed countries and sub-Saharan Africa. Its action plan centers on promoting sustainable food systems as a holistic and integrative approach that encompasses food, people and the environment, and recognizes the pivotal role of biodiversity for developing sustainable food systems.
