Since 2009, seven NCF calls for proposals have been organised and almost 600 project applications received. The NCF project portfolio comprises of 68 projects (in addition, 13 new projects from the latest call for proposals will soon be added to the portfolio).
Projects under NCF aim to increase resilience to climate change (adaptation) reduce greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation), or encompass both adaptation and mitigation (combination projects).
The average size of an NCF project has been around EUR 690,000, with an average of almost EUR 300,000 in co-financing from project partners and other financiers.
All projects are required to have a Nordic lead partner. The largest share of projects has been implemented by Danish lead partners, followed by projects with Swedish and Finnish leads.
The majority of the project partners have been private companies, followed by non-governmental organisations.
