Climate Justice Fund – Call for Funding
The Climate Justice Fund demonstrates Scotland’s role in championing Climate Justice and in supporting the development of appropriate climate adaptation solutions. This call has a particular focus on ensuring climate adapted solutions for managing water resources for all, within a framework that addresses the vulnerability of people, particularly the poor, as well as the wider environment.
The focus of this first funding round is climate change adaptation and in this first call that adaptation should include water resource management. Applications will be asked to consider a rights-based approach to programmes and services to promote human rights and the strengthening of civil society. Given the focus of this round this would entail a formal inclusive approach to water resources management, based on principles of transparency, participation, access to information.
The first round will focus on the four African countries currently supported under the International Development Fund (Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia). Grants of between £400 – 500k will be awarded over a three year period. Further details for this round, including the timetable, are set out in the Call for Funding.
The three part Application Form is available through the links below; criteria, detailed guidance and advice on completing the application is set out in the document entitled Guidance and Further Information on Completing Application Form.
