The Fund for Local Cooperation (FLC) at the Representative Office of Finland is an instrument of Finnish development cooperation. The FLC support is channelled through local civil society organizations to complement the bilateral development cooperation of Finland with the Palestinian Authority. Finland’s goal for development cooperation in Palestine is to support Palestinian state building and contribute a peaceful, negotiated two-state solution. Through the FLC instrument, Finland aims to support the participation of the civil society in the peace and development process.

This call for project proposals is looking for a project to enhance the rights and status of women with the focus on women, peace and security.
