The Nordic-Baltic NGO program aims at fostering cooperation between Nordic and Baltic NGOs, strengthening the civic society and providing support to new sustainable initiatives.

The Nordic governments are convinced that cooperating with non-governmental organisations (NGO) in the Baltic Sea region enhances networking, prosperity and democracy. To promote these aspirations the governments asked the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM) to establish the NGO Programme.
