Government of Netherlands: Dutch Fund for Climate and Development

Deadline: 22 February 2019

The Government of Netherlands is seeking grant proposals for the Dutch Fund for Climate and Development (DFCD) to finance climate projects in developing countries.

Scope of the DFCD

The overarching goal (impact) pursued by the Minister through the DFCD is climate-resilient economic growth. Efforts in developing countries (outcome) should be aimed at:

  • combating climate change (mitigation)
  • enabling people to adapt to climate change(adaptation). The Minister also wants to support the most vulnerable countries and groups.

Sectors

Climate change mitigation and adaptation affect nearly every sector in society. Dutch climate finance focuses primarily on the following sectors:

  • Access to renewable, non-fossil energy for households, transport and businesses (SDGs 7 and 13)
  • Sustainable land use and resilient ecosystems (SDGs 12, 13, 14 and 15)
  • Water security (SDG 6)
  • Food security (SDGs 2, 12, 13 and 15)

Funding Information

The minister is providing €160,000,000 in grant funding under the DFCD for the four years from 2019 to 2022.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Type of organisation
    • Dutch and non-Dutch organisations with legal personality (including NGOs,11 financial institutions, knowledge institutions, companies and service providers) and a good track record in the area of climate change and international finance.
    • Organisations can apply independently or join a consortium of organisations, on behalf of whom one of them makes the application as lead party. A consortium is a framework for cooperation between two or more organisations, have concluded a partnership agreement. All parties in the consortium contribute to the project’s final objectives and deliver demonstrable added value, both individually and collectively, with regard to the selected themes, for instance. If the application is approved, the lead party is the grant recipient and, as such, bears full responsibility towards the Minister for implementation of the proposed activities and compliance with the obligations in respect of the grant.
    • An organisation may submit only one grant application or participate in only one consortium, either as lead party or co-applicant. If an organisation is involved in more than one application, all these applications will be rejected.
    • Local governments, intergovernmental organisations and organisations in which the government is the sole shareholder are not eligible for a grant, and cannot therefore be an applicant, lead party or co-applicant.
  • Organisational management
    • The applicant’s organisation is capable of managing the fund and has a sufficient number of qualified staff. The organisation has relevant policies, processes and procedures (jointly the assessment framework) in place for making a considered appraisal of which projects should be financed, using which instruments.

    I am overwhelmed by this offer in respect of situations that are left un addressed in my constituent area. Climate change has devastated and continues to do so that requires immediate sustainable solutions. Land is being eroded uncontrablely, vegetation is being devastated without concern and control while unconscious of devastating outcomes. People live in poverty and hunger. I wish to take this opportunity to take part in offering sustainable solutions.
