The DFCD fund, financing opportunities for business projects with high environmental and social impact.

The first information session on the Dutch Fund for Climate & Development (DFCD) took place this Friday, May 6 in Morondava.

More than twenty companies operating in the Menabe and Melaky regions were present to learn about the different eligibility criteria to benefit from investment funds for business projects with high environmental and social impact.

The DFCD fund allows the private sector to invest in projects aimed at adapting to climate change and mitigating its effects in developing countries such as Madagascar.

Indeed, climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Its impacts are felt by the world's populations and by nature in general. To increase the resilience of communities and ecosystems vulnerable to climate change, the Dutch Ministry has released 160 million euros for businesses to finance environmental and social projects. These can be sustainable agriculture projects, water supply and management systems, sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, afforestation and reforestation projects ... In Madagascar, DFCD will identify projects in WWF's priority landscapes, the regions Menabe, Melaky, Atsimo Andrefana, Diana, Sofia, Sava ... however, all investment projects in other regions that meet the criteria and investment strategies of the DFCD fund are eligible.

About the DFCD Fund:
The DFCD fund is managed by a consortium consisting of Climate Fund Manager (CFM), WWF Netherlands, SNV Netherlands, a development organization led by the Dutch Entrepreneurial Development Bank and FMO.
