They are channeled through the local civil society organizations to complement the bilateral development cooperation of Finland, towards poverty reduction and participation of the civil society in the development process.

Projects should also adhere to the cross-cutting themes of Finnish development policy to strengthen the rights of the most vulnerable, promote gender equality, and improve climate change preparedness and mitigation.
