Investing for Employment will offer co-financing for "Climate" projects in Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, and Tunisia

Applications for the category "Climate" can be submitted for projects in Côte d'Ivoire, Senegal, and Tunisia from 1 June 2023. 

To specifically promote projects that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, a special category "Climate" was created for the countries Côte d'Ivoire, Senegal, and Tunisia.

The competition rounds run from 1 June to 7 July 2023. 

To qualify for the special category "Climate", project proposals must belong to one of the following thematic areas: 

  1. Installations for the production of renewable energy for the benefit of the applicant or third parties
