he Embassy of Finland in Addis Ababa is seeking proposals for its Fund for Local Cooperation (FLC) 2019-2020 to support local civil society organizations.
The FLC is expected to contribute towards the four goals of Finland’s development policy:
1. The rights and status of women and girls have strengthened.
2. Developing countries’ own economies have generated jobs, livelihood opportunities and well-being.
3. Societies have become more democratic and better-functioning.
4. Food security and access to water and energy have improved, and natural resources are used sustainably.
FLC projects should be implemented with a human rights-based approach.
The rights of women and girls, children, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable groups of the community should be taken into account in all activities.
Moreover, to the extent possible activities should be geared towards climate change adaptation and mitigation.
Projects are funded for the duration of one to two years.
