New programme for environment co-operation

A new programme for financing co-operation projects between Nordic and North-West Russian partners for the benefit of environment and climate is launching it’s first call for proposals. The goal is to directly improve the climate in North West Russia, the whole Nordic and Baltic countries and the Barents region.

Grant financing can be awarded to a lead Nordic non-commercial partner (public Nordic institutions or non-profit organisations) for the implementation of projects with environmental and climate benefits in co-operation with one or more non-commercial corresponding local partners located in North-West Russia and possibly also in another Nordic country. Selected proposals may receive grant financing from EUR 30,000 to EUR 200,000 subject to certain co-financing requirements.

The Programme is financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM) and the Barents Hot Spots Facility (BHSF) and administered by NEFCO.
