Submission Deadline: August 8 2014
The new Africa Climate Change Fund (ACCF), housed in the Energy, Environment and Climate Change Department of the African Development Bank (AfDB), is launching its first call for grant proposals.
African governments, NGOs, research and regional institutions are invited to apply by following the instructions and the structure of the attached form called “ACCF_funding request” and by filling the attached logframe, and submitting their proposals to [email protected] before midnight CET on August 8th, 2014. Grants will start from US$ 250,000 and will be dedicated to climate finance readiness projects, programmes or activities.
The first call for proposals objectives are, on the one hand, to enhance the capacity of African countries to improve their national institutional governance for direct and international access to climate finance, and on the other hand, to develop transformational policies, programs and projects for climate resilience and low carbon growth, in alignment with UNFCCC decisions.
ACCF grants can be used to fund the following type of activities:
- The recruitment of national and international consultants; trainings; consultation workshops; regional and international meetings; communication, advocacy and translation services;
- The provision of technical assistance in the preparation of studies and analytical pieces; and office equipment and transportation fees (these costs are eligible only if a direct beneficiary executes the grant after approval by the Bank).
Interested eligible beneficiaries are invited to get in touch with the AfDB field office in their country or with the ACCF Secretariat for more information: [email protected]
