The French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) has been working to promote protection of the global environment in developing countries since it was established by the French government in 1994. It is mandated to cofinance development projects with high environmental component in the areas of biodiversity, the greenhouse effect, international waters, land degradation and desertification, persistent organic pollutants and the stratospheric ozone layer.
Non-profit organisations are eligible.
All developing countries eligible for official development assistance as defined by the OECD, with priority given to Africa and the Mediterranean. French overseas areas may draw on FFEM financing through regional projects, but the FFEM contribution is then limited to 25% of the total cost of the project.
There are no indications about minimum and maximum grant sizes.
First, a Project Opportunity Note (PON) needs to be submitted which summarises the project idea. To submit this PON, the applicant has to contact one of the six FFEM members institutions (Ministry of Finance, Foreign Affairs, Sustainable Development, Research, Agriculture and the Agence Française de Developpement). If one of those institutions validates it, the note will be submitted at first to the FFEM selection committee and then to the steering committee. Then, a Project Identification Note (PIN) can be developed. There are no deadlines.
