No allocation in 2021

The board has decided that no funds will be allocated from Svalbard’s environmental protection fund in 2021.


All allocations from the fund that are made within one year are based on the income in the same year. The fund’s income has been significantly reduced due to the corona pandemic and the board has therefore decided that the fund will not allocate funds in 2021.


The applications that were received during the spring application round and then transferred to this autumn will be rejected. We point out that the applications have not been assessed and it is encouraged to resend the applications at the next application round.


Announcement for the next application round will be posted on the website and in Svalbardposten at the beginning of January and the application deadline will be 1 February.
