Nordic Development Fund

Nordic Climate Facility (NCF) funding is intended for challenging and innovative climate change approaches. NCF facilitates the exchange of technology, know-how and innovative ideas between the Nordic countries and low-income countries in the sector of climate change. This will increase low-income countries’ abilities to mitigate and adapt to climate change and contribute to sustainable development and the reduction of poverty.

NCF intends to encourage innovation in climate change related and affected sectors such as environment, energy, transport, water and sanitation, health, agriculture, forestry and other areas of natural resource management. NCF funding is intended for challenging and innovative climate change approaches which increase knowledge and know-how, identify and develop projects, test new technology and pilot projects, and scale up viable solutions. The projects should be carried out by Nordic organisations, authorities, municipalities, companies, and institutes together with partners in eligible low-income countries.

Once a year, NCF will launch a call for proposals for innovative ideas within specific themes relating to climate change. The best proposals may receive grant financing amounting between EUR 250,000 and EUR 500,000, or, in exceptional cases, amounting between EUR 150,000 and EUR 250,000. The projects should have an implementation period of less than 24 months.
