Call for Proposals: CCAC Action Programme
June 17, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Deadline: August 31st, 2021
The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) funds projects that advance action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants.
The science is clear: we need to slow the rate of warming as soon as possible in order to limit the dangerous and irreversible impacts of climate change. Achieving this will require all countries and actors to take ambitious action to reduce short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions as quickly as possible.
The Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s Action Programme to Address the 1.5˚C Challenge helps countries accelerate actions to reduce these pollutants using an approach that integrates climate and clean air action. By focusing on actions that achieve both climate and clean air objectives, countries can help reduce the rate of near-term warming – which contributes to achieving the long-term Paris Agreement targets – while at the same time realizing immediate, local benefits for public health and supporting the attainment of many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To be eligible for consideration, projects must meet all of these conditions:
- Applications must be submitted by or have the written endorsement of at least one national government eligible for official development assistance (ODA). Preference will be given to proposals submitted by or supporting one or multiple CCAC State Partners.
- Applications must be submitted by a partnership of at least two entities actively involved in the implementation of the project.
- The funding requested cannot be higher than $US 100,000 and the project duration cannot exceed 24 months.
How to apply
Eligible applicants are invited to apply any time before 31 August 2021 using the Application Form (.doc).
Applications will be reviewed by CCAC Partners and members of the Secretariat by 30 September 2021. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their proposals and respond to follow-up questions about their application.
