    Outdoor life and the opportunity to be out in nature became extra important during covid 19. The government worked closely with the central outdoor life organizations throughout the year, to get as many people as possible out into nature when so much of society was otherwise closed down. This has been important for public health throughout the year. The government allocated a total of NOK 24 million in extra funds for outdoor life during the year, in addition to the ordinary allocation for outdoor life of NOK 245 million. In addition, the government was flexible on how the funds for outdoor life were used, as long as it was within the outdoor life purpose.

NICFI's budget was not increased, but in light of Covind-19, priority was given within the budget frame to support for capacity building in partner countries (e.g. control and law enforcement) and support to indigenous peoples. For example in Colombia extra support was given to UNODC to combat forest crime.
