CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: AfricaAdapt Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund
AfricaAdapt is launching the 2nd edition of the Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund that promotes new ways of sharing knowledge between African communities. Poor and vulnerable communities in many African countries rarely have the opportunity to share their valuable experience and learn from others formal exchanges of knowledge on climate change adaptation.
The Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund will offer grants of up to US$6.500 to projects that seek to overcome barriers to share knowledge with ’hard to reach’ or marginalised African communities. These barriers may be related to geographical remotness, low communication infrastructure, language, access to information and marginalisation due to gender or disability. Theatre performances, songs, radio broadcasts, visual arts, videos and comics are just a few ideas about how they could be overcome. The key is to ensure these groups can learn and share knowledge that can be usefully deployed.

Deadline: August 20, 2010
