The Common Fund’s mandate is to enhance the socio-economic development of commodity producers and contribute to the development of society as a whole. In line with its market-oriented approach, the Fund concentrates on commodity development projects financed from its resources. These resources consist of voluntary contributions, capital subscriptions by Member Countries transferred to the Second Account and interest earned. Whereas voluntary contributions can be used for either grants or loans, the capital subscription transferred to the Second Account can only be applied for loan-financing of projects. Through co-operation with other development institutions, the private sector and civil society, the Fund endeavours to achieve overall efficiency in and impact on commodity development.
All opportunities from Common Fund for Commodities are published on DevelopmentAid under Funding Agency "NGO".
