Official visit to Brazil by HRH Crown Prince Haakon – part 3

In the third video clip shared by The Royal Palace, we can follow Crown Prince Haakon’s steps in his trip to Belém do Pará.

It was arranged an environmental seminar to discuss further cooperation in the efforts to reduce deforestation. Since the Amazon Fund was established in 2008, Norway has been the largest contributor to the fund, having invested ca. USD 1 billion. The fund supports projects that contribute to avoid, monitor and combat deforestation.

The main lessons I draw from what Brazil and Norway are doing nationally and internationally are these: we must set ambitious goals, and we must engage in joint efforts – between countries, civil society, the scientific community and the private sector. Only then will we be able to achieve our ultimate goal: To hand this world over to the next generation in a better condition than it was handed over to us.

Innovation Norway is responsible for promoting the Norwegian industry abroad. Our office in Rio de Janeiro manages Innovation House Rio, our business incubator office, and helps Norwegian companies in their efforts towards the Brazilian market.
