We are the joint Nordic international finance institution (IFI) focusing on the nexus between climate change and development in lower-income countries and countries in fragile situations.
As an organisation with a clear focus on creating impact on societies, we have chosen to formulate our objectives and aspirations as a Purpose.
Our Strategy 2025 entails increased focus on adaptation financing and accelerating progress in gender equality. More financing will be targeted towards Africa, and special efforts will be made to further engage in the least developed countries and countries in fragile situations.
Governing bodies and capital
NDF is the joint Nordic international finance institution (IFI) established by an intergovernmental treaty between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden in 1988.
NDF is governed by its constituent documents, and a number of policies, guidelines and instructions.
During our 30 years of operations and more than 10 years of climate financing, we have built a track record of adding value by financing climate mitigation and adaptation projects in close interaction with our extensive network of strategic partners.
