CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Community-based Climate Change Action Grants (AusAID)
AusAID has made available grants for Australian and international NGOs to work with local organizations to scale up current successful community-based climate change activities or to build a climate change component into existing community development activities in the Pacific and Southeast Asia. The fund is open to NGOs with expertise in the implementation of community-based adaptation and/or mitigation activities.
The grants fall into two main categories:
- Community-based adaptation grants, which will help build the resilience of communities to the impacts of climate change; and
- Community-based mitigation grants, which will help communities reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions, while also addressing key development priorities.
Organisations are invited to submit concept proposals for the grants program. AusAID will co-fund the detailed design of activities for successful organisations.
Deadline: February 10, 2012
