The Government of Flanders launched in 2021 the G-STIC Climate Action Programme, a call for project proposals, to support developing countries in the fight against climate change. For the third project call the Government of Flanders provides €17.6 million subsidies for projects which implement and upscale climate solutions in developing countries. The goal is to enable these countries to follow low-carbon development paths and to make their communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
This programme provides subsidies for demonstration, dissemination and capacity building projects implemented in developing countries and in which a Flemish organization takes the lead. To be eligible for financial governmental support in the G-STIC Climate Action Programme, projects must directly and explicitly aim at supporting adaptation and/or mitigation actions in developing countries. Projects must focus on areas where climate-related solutions can be expected to have maximal impact, preferably in one or more of the following sectors: Agriculture, Biodiversity, Education & Research, Energy, Environmental Policy, Transport and Water & Sanitation.
