Innovation Financing for Development Support to the European Commission (FWC - Lot 6)
The overall framework objective is to support and advise Commission services and/or Partner Countries/ Authorities of the European Commission’s external aid programs (i.e. “EU Neighbourhood”, Latin America and Caribbean, Asia and Pacific, sub-Saharan African and Pre-accession countries) by providing individual, short-term operational services along the entire cycle of operations (from design to implementation and evaluation of EU interventions). More specifically, it aims to support investment and increase financial access for initiatives that contribute to the achievements of SDG goals (e.g. targeting causes of irregular migration, climate action, and poverty eradication). In other words, it aims to improve economic and social development through sustainable public and private investments with a focus on the creation of decent jobs.
This fund is designed as a framework programme, organised in different lots (sub-programmes). Lot 6 focuses on innovative finance for development.
