Contributions support NGO-initiated programmes and projects. The SDC differentiates between programme contributions and targeted contributions.
Contributions to NGOs
Programme contributions are grants provided to Swiss NGO’s international programmes. They enable NGOs to respond flexibly to changing situations.
The SDC may provide targeted contributions for specific projects or initiatives by Swiss or foreign NGOs. Such contributions are granted for activities that are in line with the SDC’s thematic and regional or country strategies.
List of scheduled and awarded mandates
In response to calls for greater transparency and competition in the awarding of contracts, the FDFA has set up a platform on which planned and awarded contracts are published.
