Norway’s National Walking Strategy, developed by the Norwegian Public Road Administration, has now been adopted by the Norwegian government.
With a mandate to set national targets for 2014 – 2023, propose actions and measures to achieve those goals and recommend a system to evaluate progress, the strategy’s two main goals are that walking should appeal to everyone, and that more people should walk more often. Currently many Norwegians will walk distances of under 0.5 km, but are reliant on cars for journeys of more than 1.4 km.
