Advance information on the upcoming 2021 Call for Proposals for International Non-governmental Organizations (INGOs)

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland (MFA) will open a Call for Proposals for INGOs on 15th of February.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland organizes approximately every two years an open Call for Proposals for INGOs for support in development cooperation. This form of support complements Finland's development cooperation in sectors that are of strategic importance for Finland.

The MFA will consider development cooperation funds to INGOs whose activities support the implementation of Finland’s development policy priorities and goals, including in the area of human rights, as guided by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The thematic focus areas of the upcoming Call include, among others, the promotion of sexual and reproductive health and rights, support for human right defenders and strengthening victims’ access to justice.

Further information about the Call, including detailed descriptions of all the thematic focus areas, will be published at the MFA website on 15th of February.
