Cross-cutting objectives of the Finnish development policy, including gender equality, reduction of social inequalities and climate sustainability are required to be integrated to all projects funded by Finland, emphasizing those aspects that benefit most in the local context.
The FLC is geared towards local civil society actors to carry out well-targeted projects with a clear goal and sustainable outcome. The Embassy’s FLC has been operating in the Republic of Moldova since 2008.
Award amounts will range from 25,000€–50,000€. Project duration is normally limited up to one year.
The Embassy announces a call for proposals once in a year. The call for proposals in 2017 will close on Friday 10th of March 2017 at 16:00 hrs (UTC +2).
