What?

The G-STIC Climate Action Programme was launched to support developing countries in the fight against climate change. In 2022, the Government of Flanders provides 15,88 million euros for the second project call of the G-STIC Climate Action Programme. 

These subsidies are meant for both demonstration projects as well as dissemination & capacity building projects implemented by Flemish organisations in developing countries. The projects should directly and explicitly aim at climate adaptation and/or mitigation actions in line with the OECD Handbook. They must focus on areas where climate-related solutions can be expected to have maximal impact, preferably in one or more of the following seven sectors:

  • Agriculture
  • Biodiversity
  • Education & Research
  • Energy
  • Environmental Policy
  • Transport
  • Water & Sanitation
Project proposals should be registered by 26/08/2022, the deadline for full proposals is on 09/09/2022. Approved projects start in January 2023.
