NDF - Financing for climate change and development projects

Newsroom: Publications

The publication, produced by the Nordic Council of Ministers, focuses on actions taken by the Nordic countries to speed the transition to a sustainable low-carbon society.

The publication shows how sustainable development is possible, with strong climate policies contributing to economic growth and job creation as well as environmental improvements.

The 2016 Annual Review for the Nordic Climate Facility's calls 1 to 4 has been published.

The Annual Review covers calls 1-4, which are administered by NEFCO. At the end of 2016, 36 out of 51 NCF1-4 projects were fully completed.

A summary report of NDF’s 2016 activities and results is now available online.

During 2016, nine NDF-backed climate-related projects reached completion. Brief summaries of the results of these projects are presented in the report, which also summarises NDF and NCF’s operational highlights of last year.
