20 February 2020

Civil society organisations can apply to NICFI call for proposals by 19 May 2020

The Norwegian Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI) has announced a call for proposals for funding for civil society organisations for the period 2021-2025 with an application deadline extended to 19 May 2020.

Civil society organisations are invited to present proposals for projects that contribute to reversing and reducing the loss of tropical forests, contribute to a stable climate, protect biodiversity and enhance sustainable development.

Projects funded under this grant scheme must address one or more of the five following categories:

  1. Indigenous peoples, local communities and environmental defenders
  2. Deforestation-free supply chains and financial markets
  3. Reduced forest crime and improved forest monitoring
  4. Mobilising ambition and support for forest friendly policies
  5. Groundbreaking ideas to reduce deforestation

Applications must be submitted electronically and in English through the Grants Portal and will not be accepted later than 19 May 2020 at 13:00 CET.

Civil society organizations are seen as important agents of change and central actors in contributing to NICFI’s strategic goals, which include supporting efforts to slow, halt and eventually reduce greenhouse gas emissions resulting from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD+).
