Nordic Climate Facility 7th call for proposals

The Nordic Climate Facility (NCF) announces its 7th call for proposals, opening August 28, 2017 and running through to the end of September.  

The theme of this year’s call is Climate as Business: Testing innovative green business concepts. The call focuses on testing innovative climate-related business ideas that have the potential to become commercially viable.

Nordic companies or organisations are encouraged to apply for funding if they want to test a business concept that contributes to increased climate resilience, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and generates positive development impacts in low-income countries, such as job creation and gender equality.

To be eligible for funding, the proposed project must be a partnership between a Nordic and a local organisation in one of the 21 NCF-eligible countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. NCF can provide co-financing between EUR 250,000 and EUR 500,000.

Since 2009, six calls for proposals have been organised with over 70 projects implemented across three continents.

NCF is a challenge fund managed by the Nordic Development Fund.
