The Nordic Climate Facility (NCF) is expected to launch its fourth call for proposals in December 2013

The theme of the call will be “Inclusive green growth projects contributing to private sector development”. Preference will be given to projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This year, the pre-qualification proposals shall be submitted through an on-line application platform. More information on the requirements and guidelines for applying for funds will be available on NDF’s and NEFCO’s web sites from the beginning of December 2013.

NCF promotes the transfer of technology, know-how and innovative ideas between the Nordic countries and low-income countries facing climate change. The aim is to increase low-income countries’ abilities to mitigate and adapt to climate change; to contribute to sustainable development; and to alleviate poverty. Since the first call for proposals was launched in 2009, NCF has allocated EUR 18 million to 40 projects in low-income countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

NCF is financed by the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) and administered by the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO).
