Community-based Adaptation Activity Grants: International Climate Change Adaptation Initiative (ICCAI)
Source: www.ausaid..gov.au/business/other_opps/iccai.cfm <http://www.ausaid.gov.au/business/other_opps/iccai.cfm>
The Australian Government is calling for applications from Australian and international non-government organisations (NGOs) to work with local organisations to scale up current successful community-based adaptation activities or to build an adaptation component onto existing community-based activities in the Pacific region, including East Timor.
The objective of the Community-based Adaptation Activity Grants is to increase the resilience of communities in the region to the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
Preference will be given to Australian and international NGOs working in consortia; particularly where consortia build on the comparative advantages of individual organisations. Consortia involving both development and conservation NGOs, including international or Australian NGOs working with regional and/or national NGOs from the Pacific or East Timor, would be particularly encouraged.
Applications in the range A$500,000 to A$1,000,000 will be considered but must be proportional to the work entailed and demonstrate value for money. Funding support will cover activities to commence from April 2010 and be completed by 30 June 2011.
This funding opportunity is made available under Australia’s $150 million International Climate Change Adaptation Initiative <http://www.ausaid.gov.au/keyaid/adaptation_initiative.cfm> which aims to meet high priority climate change adaptation needs in vulnerable countries in our region.
