NDF - Financing for climate change and development projects

Åbo Akademi Students visited NDF


NDF supports awareness-raising of its climate change investments

Twenty students from Åbo Akademi University’s Faculty for Social Sciences, Business and Economics visited NDF on Friday 25 November 2016 to acquaint themselves with NDF’s core activities. The delegation was hosted by Vice President and Deputy Managing Director Leena Klossner, Administration and Communications Officer Maria Talari, and Project Assistant Elin Blomqvist. The program included presentations of NDF, its climate-related development projects, outreach and communication activities.

The students were interested in discussing and learning about NDF’s climate change innovations in Africa, Asia and Latin America and to discuss the documentation of results achieved in projects financed by NDF. Of particular interest was also the way Nordic companies can get involved in activities financed by NDF.  The visit brought to NDF an inspired and energetic group of students interested in how NDF through its project support helps countries and local populations adapt to the impacts of climate change and reduce CO2 emissions.
