With increasing humanitarian needs in the world, Norwegian humanitarian aid is also increasing.
That is good, but it comes at the expense of Norway's long-term assistance.

The election campaign is over, and we are inviting a non-binding debate where it is about raising our eyes,
Be a visionary and come up with the good ideas.
In the last four years, humanitarian aid has increased by more than 50 percent. According to socio-economic analysis
humanitarian aid will make up almost half of the Norwegian aid budget in 2030.
It is important and correct to increase humanitarian aid, but it displaces aid for long-term development in more
stable areas. Ultimately, therefore, vulnerable people in other parts of the world pay for the increased
humanitarian contributions in the Norwegian aid budget.
Save the Children invites an idea idea on how Norway can respond to the world's growing humanitarian needs
without sending the bill to the world's poor.
The idea note points to concrete alternatives to how Norway can find healthy means to increase our humanitarian contributions.
One of the ideas is to create a crisis fund under the Government Pension Fund Global.
We challenge Norwegian politicians to dare to think again, dare to be visionary.
