Grants development cooperation
Three partner countries
In the three partner countries Mozambique, Malawi and South Africa, the policy to be pursued is set out in country strategy papers. We also reinforce our work in the partner countries by subsidising projects that reach beyond the country’s borders. The themes of these projects are in line with the sectors specified in the country strategy papers.
Support for private initiatives
Within the Flemish development cooperation landscape a lot of (small-scale) citizens’ initiatives are operational. A large number of people roll up their sleeves and support a project in the South. In Flanders, these initiatives are referred to as the 4th Pillar. To support these initiatives and respond to their needs wherever possible, a Support Centre was established in January 2009. Flanders was one of the founding fathers of this initiative and gives financial support to the Support Centre.
