DFCD Scalable Climate Solutions challenge in Uganda

The Dutch Fund for Climate and Development (DFCD) is organising an extra push for proposals by launching the Scalable Climate Solutions Challenge in Uganda.

The DFCD is looking for business models and potentially bankable projects in sectors, such as climate-resilient agroforestry, landscape regeneration, water management and freshwater supply, agriculture or aquaculture.

To learn more about the climate challenges in Uganda and how the DFCD could support your project’s in scaling successfully, the DFCD is organizing this interactive online event.

During this webinar, a Ugandan forestry company shares its story of how it is helping to create resilience for people and nature, and how the DFCD is supporting the project. The selection criteria of the DFCD will also be explained.

One project per country will be provided with a development contribution of up to € 350K from the existing DFCD Origination facility, get a chance to present their project at COP26 in Glasgow and become eligible for larger support from DFCD.
