Since the year 2011 Lithuania provides financial support to developing countries in the area of the climate change mitigation and adaptation to climate change from the funds of the Climate Change Program administered by the Ministry of Environment, via developmental cooperation projects administered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and via contributions from the Ministry of Finance.
Bilateral developmental cooperation projects are a perfect opportunity to gain experience in the implementation of international projects, to open up new opportunities for a company or organization in developing countries and to contribute to the dissemination of Lithuanian technology solutions, and simultaneously to contribute to Lithuania’s commitment to support developing countries under the Global Climate Change Agreement signed in Paris in the year 2015.
Bilateral support is more effective and beneficial to both parties; it not only helps to exchange Lithuanian experience and establish valuable contacts through cooperation, but also creates the environment that allows employing the public finance by attracting the private sector investments into low-carbon technologies under bilateral cooperation projects, via which techmologies are transferred to developing countries. Various Lithuanian (private and public) entities that intend to implement projects regarding the climate change mitigation and adaptation to the climate change consequences in developing countries are entitled to this bilateral support.
The Developmental Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid Commission of the Ministry of the Environment annually approves the project concept; with taking into account the approved concept, the Environmental Projects Management Agency announces the competition for projects and selects the best projects.
Calls for the submission of project applications / concepts are annually published on http://am.lrv.lt/en/, https://www.apva.lt/en/ and in the press.
