Fund for Local Cooperation


Objective of the Fund for Local Cooperation

The objective of the FLC is to complement other Finnish development efforts in the fields of poverty reduction and environmentally, economically and socially sustainable development, human rights, democracy and good governance and civil society strengthening. Read more about Finnish Development Policy on <>.

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 Fund in the Republic of Moldova has two priority areas in 2018:

1. Support to strengthening the capacity of individuals and authorities to promote human rights of people with disabilities, including

  • respect for inherent dignity and individual autonomy

  • non-discrimination and equal, full and effective participation and inclusion in society, including gender equality

  • respect for difference and acceptance of persons with disabilities as part of human diversity and humanity

  • equality of opportunity and accessibility

  • respect for the evolving capacities of children.

2.  Support to the freedom of expression and media diversity, including

  • promotion of transparency, access to information, accountability and public participation

  • enhancing critical thinking and media literacy, particularly in the use of social media.
