NGOs will play an increasing role in delivery of Icelandic development aid in future

18.2.2011

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and ICEIDA (Icelandic International Development Agency) have introduced new guidelines for the allocation of grants to Icelandic NGOs involved in development cooperation or emergency and humanitarian assistance.

The new guidelines were developed in close cooperation with representatives from the NGO community. It is planned that an increasing proportion of Icelandic ODA will be channelled through NGOs in coming years.
