Newsletter - July 2020

Dear Subscribers,
Since its foundation 25 years ago, the FFEM has financed almost 350 pilot projects to preserve the environment in developing countries. 

We’re marking this milestone anniversary by launching our newsletter, to give you more regular updates on the progress of these projects and the innovations being applied on the ground. Events, publications, project development: this quarterly newsletter will bring you all the latest news from the FFEM.

We hope you enjoy the read!
Best wishes

Your FFEM Team
