RESULTS OF THE THIRD PROJECT CALL IN 2023

€17.4 million in subsidies allocated to 19 projects for climate solutions in developing countries

In 2021, the Government of Flanders launched the G-STIC Climate Action Programme to support developing countries in the fight against climate change. By providing financial support to projects for climate change adaptation and mitigation, the G-STIC Climate Action Programme aims to strengthen developing countries' implementation of climate policies, strategies, regulations and action plans.

The G-STIC Climate Action Programme supports projects that aim to demonstrate technologies, disseminate knowledge, and build capacity in developing countries and in which a Flemish organization takes the lead.

The third project call in 2023 resulted in 102 submitted project proposals. These proposals were evaluated by an independent jury under the coordination of the Flemish Department of Environment & Spatial Development. In December 2023, the Flemish Government approved the funding of 19 projects for a total amount of €17.4 million. The Flemish Government allocated €12,2 million in subsidies to 8 demonstration projects and €5,2 million in subsidies to 11 dissemination and capacity-building projects.
