Northern Dimension

The Northern Dimension

The Northern Dimension (ND) is a common policy shared by four equal partners: the European Union, Norway, Iceland and the Russian Federation. The policy covers the geographic area from the European Arctic and Sub-Arctic to the southern shores of the Baltic Sea, countries in the vicinity and from north-west Russia in the east, to Iceland and Greenland in the west.

The policy’s main objectives are to provide a common framework for the promotion of dialogue and concrete cooperation, to strengthen stability and well-being, intensify economic cooperation, and promote economic integration, competitiveness and sustainable development in Northern Europe.
