Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI) supports the development of the REDD+ international agenda and architecture. The ICFI’s primary goal is to help establish a global, binding, long-term post-2012 regime that will ensure the necessary and sufficient cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions to limit global temperature rises to no more than 2°C.

Norad grants funding to organisations within civil society, research, higher education and private sector development that work with partners in poor countries. In addition, funding will primarily be provided through the above mentioned established multilateral channels, with certain exceptions for bilateral partnerships. Country partnerships under NICFI are viewed as opportunities to demonstrate that genuine north-south climate change partnerships based on mutual commitments, mutual trust and constructive dialogue are possible.
