The Norwegian Climate and Forest funding to civil society

Civil society is seen as important agent of change and central actor in furthering and applying REDD+.

From 2009 to 2012 Norad has supported 46 projects which have contributed in various ways to the work on REDD+.

In 2013 42 civil society organizations have been selected to continue the important progress on REDD+ within four important thematic areas.

In november 2014 Norad announced a new call for proposals from civil society organisations working on Climate and Forest issues. The new grant scheme will run over a period of five years, starting 1 January 2016.
