For who? Fundraisers and other staff of (I)NGOs and CSOs who want to explore new fundraising markets or have already taken a first step in the diversification of their funds

US Foundations – morning
Over the past 10 years, Indonesian nonprofits have received more than $130,000,000 in grants from American foundations! This basic introduction seminar is aimed at understanding the market of American foundations, such as the Ford Foundation and the Gates Foundation. There are over 100.000 foundations in the US. Annually, these foundations give billions of dollars to non-American nonprofits. Where do these international grants go? What subject areas are most popular? What are the conditions under which they are given out? And most importantly: how can your nonprofit enter this market successfully? This morning session is provided by Eelco Keij, founder and director of KeyLance Consultancy LLC.

Support and fund Raising Strategy – afternoon 
Nowadays many NGOs are struggling to mobilize resources. In one afternoon you will receive the steps on how to develop a strategy for your organization which focuses on Relationship building, Recognition (branding, leadership & accountability) and Resource mobilisation which includes financial and non-financial support, including voluntarism, moral support, political and policy support from individuals, governments, the private sector and other NGOs. Louke Koopmans, trainer at MDF Asia, specialized in developing strategies will deliver this session.

FAQs
What is loss and damage?

Loss and damage is an emerging field that is being addressed at the international level in the global climate change negotiations and is also being considered by many national governments in light of increasing climate change impacts. Increased focus on loss and damage in recent years has been spurred by the realisation that existing levels of mitigation and adaptation will not be enough to avoid all negative impacts from climate change. These residual losses and damages will require new approaches and new ways of thinking and doing.

What is the purpose of this webpage?

This webpage will provide technical guidance on understanding and addressing loss and damage as well as a platform for the exchange of knowledge and the sharing of best practices as countries in the Asia Pacific region begin to grapple with how to best address loss and damage.

Where can I find more information on Loss and Damage?

The Loss and Damage in Vulnerable Countries Initiative initiated by the Government of Bangladesh provides more information on the issue. Visit: http://lossanddamage.net
