H.E. Rolf Willy Hansen, Norway’s Ambassador to Syria, visited Tel Hadya last month, accompanied by Mr Firas Shuman, Honorary Consul. The government of Norway is one of ICARDA’s largest donors, and has contributed more than US$ 2.3 million in unrestricted funding in the past two years. The Ambassador met with ICARDA senior management to discuss opportunities to continue and build on this partnership.

“I am truly impressed with the quality of ICARDA’s work,” said H.E. Hansen. “Norway is proud to be among the many contributors to your work.”
