Who can apply

Priority will be given to civil society actors working within the field of reduced deforestation and forest degradation in targeted developing countries. Inter-governmental organisations outside the UN may in exceptional cases receive support. Independent competence centers or think tanks with an idealistic, non-commercial purpose may also receive support. 

Objectives and activities

The scheme shall contribute to the climate and development goals set for NICFI by the Norwegian Parliament. Civil society can play a crucial role in reaching the overarching goals of contributing to the establishment of a global regime for REDD+, reduced CO2 emissions from deforestation and forest and peat degradation, sustainable development and human rights.
