Deadline: 14 March 2019
The Representative Office of Finland is seeking applications from Palestinian non-governmental organisations for a grant entitled “Fund for Local Cooperation” to support a development project to be implemented in 2019-2020.
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.
The supported project should target at least one of the following expected outcomes:
- Women play a more meaningful role in conflict prevention, mediation and peacebuilding.
- Women and girls receive better protection, their rights are better safeguarded, and their needs are better met during conflicts.
The project should apply a human rights based approach and results based management principles. The project should also take into account the cross cutting objectives of Finnish development policy: strengthening the rights of the most vulnerable, promoting gender equality and improving climate change preparedness and mitigation.
