Which climate objectives must your project meet?

To be eligible for funding under the Flanders International Climate Action Programme, projects must be directly and explicitly aimed at supporting adaptation and/or mitigation actions in developing countries.

Projects must be fully climate-accountable as defined by the OECD Development Assistance Committee. This means that the project must primarily aim to limit the negative impact of climate change on living and environmental conditions (adaptation) and/or the emission of greenhouse gases (mitigation) in developing countries. The climate objective (mitigation and/or adaptation) must be explicitly emphasized as primary in the description of the intended objectives and associated activities of the project.

Criteria for mitigation

Mitigating climate change involves counteracting or limiting climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions or by removing CO2 from the atmosphere using new technologies.

Criteria for adaptation

Adaptation is the process of adjusting to the current or future climate and its effects, aiming to mitigate its adverse consequences or exploit favorable opportunities. Adaptation aims to take the necessary measures to reduce the vulnerability of human and natural systems to the impacts of climate change.
