“Increasing private investment opportunities in climate projects is crucial. Because public and philanthropic resources alone will never be enough to tackle the climate challenge. Via DFCD, locally identified NGO’s and communities will build bridges with the world of finance. SDG17 is extremely important. The fund will endeavor an optimistic approach, from good to great.” – Sigrid Kaag, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Co-operation
