Is it correct that in kind contributions can be considered as cash contributions if it is a critical asset to the delivery of the project?

Both in kind and in cash contributions are accepted, as both are considered investments on the part of the Implementing Partner. But you should bear in mind that this is a competitive funding process, and a project with a heavy emphasis on in-kind contributions might not look as strong as a project with a heavier emphasis on in-cash contributions.
