FINANCING CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS VIA CALLS FOR PROJECTS
THE “NGO INITIATIVES” MECHANISM
The main aim of this mechanism is to co-finance projects or programmes put forward by French civil society organisations (CSOs) that are deployed at local level with the aim of improving how local CSOs are organised and expanding their capabilities.
THE SECTORAL INNOVATION FACILITY FOR NGOS (FISONG)
The FISONG, which is managed by AFD’s Operations Department, is a “call for ideas” based on themes defined in consultation with non-governmental organisations (NGOs), with the aim of encouraging CSOs from France and beyond to develop innovative practices.
CRISIS AND POST-CRISIS CALLS FOR PROJECTS (APCC)
Since 2013, AFD has been developing a wide range of instruments to provide a more effective response to unstable situations, including crisis and post-crisis calls for projects (APCC). APCCs are based on specifications set out by AFD and allow projects to be codeveloped with CSOs and other French and international not-for-profit organisations.
FINANCING PRIVATE-SECTOR INNOVATION VIA CALLS FOR PROJECTS
PRIVATE-SECTOR INNOVATION FACILITY FOR CLIMATE CHANGE (FISP-CLIMAT)
The FISP-CLIMAT, which is managed by the French Global Environment Facility (FFEM), aims to promote innovation in the climate-change sector, through projects put forward by private-sector organisations and developed in an eligible country, in partnership with local stakeholders.
FINANCING INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVES BY LOCAL GOVERNMENTS VIA CALLS FOR PROJECTS
THE FRENCH LOCAL AUTHORITIES FINANCING FACILITY (FICOL)
Development decisions are most effective when they are taken at local level. It is this notion that underpins the FICOL, which was set up to help French local authorities support projects in developing countries.
FINANCING THEMED SECTORAL PROJECTS VIA CALLS FOR PROJECTS
AFD regularly issues themed calls for projects that are open to a range of applicants, from CSOs to private-sector organisations.

THE CALL FOR SOCIAL AND INCLUSIVE BUSINESS INITIATIVES (SIB)
The aim of the SIB call for initiatives is to finance projects that promote and develop social and inclusive entrepreneurship in the countries in which AFD operates. Projects can be put forward by private-sector organisations, including NGOs, businesses and consortia.
