In 2007, the Norwegian government established a team that would work with all the ministries in Norway to develop a plan to combat climate change and its effects.1 This group is devoted to adapting to climate change and is headed up by the Ministry of Climate and Environment.2 In 2013, the Norwegian Parliament, Stortinget, published an overview of the government?s new policies regarding climate change adaptation.3 Research has predicted that with the global climate change, Norway will experience a marked increase in precipitation, acid rain, and urban flooding.4 Additionally, the consequences and destruction from natural disasters will be worse.5

The Norwegian economy is a prosperous mixed economy, with a vibrant private sector, a large state sector, and an extensive social safety net. The government controls key areas, such as the vital petroleum sector, through extensive regulation and large-scale state-majority-owned enterprises. The country is richly endowed with natural resources - petroleum, hydropower, fish, forests, and minerals - and is highly dependent on the petroleum sector, which accounts for the largest portion of export revenue and about 20% of government revenue. Norway is the world's third-largest natural gas exporter; and seventh largest oil exporter, making one of its largest offshore oil ...See More finds in 2011. Norway opted to stay out of the EU during a referendum in November 1994; nonetheless, as a member of the European Economic Area, it contributes sizably to the EU budget. In anticipation of eventual declines in oil and gas production, Norway saves state revenue from the petroleum sector in the world's second largest sovereign wealth fund, valued at over $700 billion in January 2013 and uses the fund''s return to help finance public expenses. After solid GDP growth in 2004-07, the economy slowed in 2008, and contracted in 2009, before returning to positive growth in 2010-12, however, the government budget is set to remain in surplus.
