Call for Proposals – Stronger Partnerships: Local Innovations for New Climate Realities in Cities

Cities Alliance has launched a new Innovation Call for Proposals to support affordable, accessible and innovative climate adaptation projects at community level. We are looking at initiatives that improve the capacity of the urban poor to address the potential impacts of climate change and, in particular, the impacts on women, young people, vulnerable and underrepresented groups. Projects must be inclusive and create opportunities for engagement with local governments and other relevant stakeholders. If successful, they will demonstrate new climate adaptation approaches built upon Public Community Partnerships and with the potential to catalyse transformational change in cities.

Where?Projects can take place in any of the following countries: Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, Bangladesh or Myanmar.

Who?Community-based organisations, national and local NGOs, and not-for-profit organisations working on innovative ways to improve climate adaptation in cities are invited to apply.

How much?Grants will range from USD 25,000 to USD 30,000 per project. Funding is available for projects with a duration of up to 8 months.

When?Proposals must be submitted by 30 March 2020, 14:00 Central European Time.
