Call for proposals - Climate and Forest Funding for Civil Society 2016-2020

Last updated: 26.11.2014 // Civil society organisations working on Climate and Forest issues in targeted developing countries are invited to submit proposals in a new five-year program awarding a total grant of about 1,5 billion NOK.

The new grant scheme will run over a period of five years, starting 1 January 2016. In order to reach the overarching climate and development goals of the Norwegian International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI), the 2016-2020 portfolio will be focused on four thematic areas:

  • Indigenous and Other Forest-dependent Populations’ Rights and Interests
  • Commodity Supply Chains and Green Growth
  • Legality, Transparency and Governance
  • International Consensus on REDD+

The experience from the current portfolio of projects shows that such a thematic concentration helps create synergies between projects and facilitate learning experiences between organisations.

- Civil Society actors are making valuable gains on matters related to safeguards and wider governance issues. They will continue to be important actors for change within the REDD+ context, says Director of Norad’s Civil Society Department, Svein Bæra.

The deadline for submitting concept notes is 6 January 2015.
