Strategic partnerships

Our Mandate requires a scale of investment that can only be partially delivered through our own resources.


For us, co-financing with strategic partners is a well-established way of working to leverage financing, knowledge and expertise. Strategic partnerships mean for us an effective way of engaging with partners who share our goals and commitments in the climate and development agenda, and with whom we can multiply our added value to this agenda.

To respond to the growing needs in climate finance, we work closely with multilateral development banks, international development agencies, other multilateral and bilateral institutions, the private sector, and other emerging development partners to fund activities in line with the Mandate and Strategy.

In addition to our strategic partnerships with global actors, we support and engage in collaboration opportunities and partnerships with other Nordic institutions, including the bilateral development finance institutions as well as the bilateral development aid agencies.
