Posted by Shofi Fida Wednesday, February 22, 2012 0 comments
Closing Date: April 19,2012.
The objective of the Canada Fund for African Climate Resilience (Canada Fund) is to support projects that will substantially improve and increase food security and/or economic growth within an African country by reducing the impacts of climate change through protection of investments and/or adaptation measures.

CIDA's Partnerships with Canadians Branch (PWCB) is launching a specialized call for proposals under a $20-million fund to support and rapidly address climate change effects and adaptation needs that are restricting or having negative impact on improving food security and/or economic growth in Africa.
This call will capitalize on Canadian expertise in addressing climate change effects and adaptation needs, as well as delivering sustainable, effective development projects in eligible developing countries in Africa. Proposals are to target achieving the objectives of the call. Proposals should also consider the opportunity to capture innovation to address critical climate change issues that require specialized expertise and technologies and integrated approaches. The proposals must be substantive in scope, self-sustaining once in operation, and achieve demonstrable results and outcomes.
A panel that will include experts in the fields of development, climate change, agriculture, and economic development will review all eligible proposals. The panel will make recommendations to the Minister for International Cooperation for final approval.
Funding will be provided in the form of a grant or a contribution and will be based on a cost-share basis, up to 85 percent CIDA and 15 percent the partner, calculated on project costs. The partner's 15 percent cost-share contribution is a baseline; a higher contribution by the partner will be factored in the proposal assessment. The level of investment (cash versus in-kind contribution) will also be considered when assessing proposals for sustainability. Only substantive projects with a minimum budget of $2 million will be considered; all projects will be subject to an evaluation against results and outputs proposed.
Eligible private sector or civil society applicants, or their coalitions, may submit up to two proposals. Each proposal will be for a project implemented in only one country among the following eligible countries in Africa:
1. CIDA countries of focus: Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Mozambique, Senegal, Tanzania
2. Other eligible countries: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Zambia
