The Atlantic Council presented Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg with its Global Citizen Award for her commitment to multilateralism, international development and poverty reduction, and education.

Solberg has committed Norway to host the replenishment conference for the Global Financing Facility Group, which aims to raise funds for developing countries to use to improve their health and nutrition programs, especially for women, marginalized groups, and children.

Her government has also placed a specific focus on expanding educational opportunities in developing countries, especially for girls. In 2018, Norway pledged to increase its contribution to GPE to about US$255 million.
