Launch of Climate Justice Innovation Fund
The Scottish Government’s brand new Climate Justice Innovation Fund (CJIF) opened for applications on Monday 5th June 2017.
As a recognised leader in the field of climate justice, the Scottish Government has launched the CJIF to catalyse the development of effective innovation which we hope will lead to breakthrough solutions in supporting African communities to build resilience to the worst effects of climate change.
The CJIF is open to any Scottish-based organisation, working with an in-country partner (or partners), to support the delivery of climate justice-related projects which demonstrate innovation in the field. CJIF projects should be implemented in one or more of the Scottish Government’s International Development sub-Saharan priority countries (Malawi, Zambia or Rwanda), with awards of up to £100,000 for project grants over a maximum three year period. Projects must also support the beneficiary country’s development priorities.
The management and administration of the CJIF will be undertaken by the Lloyds TSB Foundation, who have been managing our International Development Small Grants Programme since 2014. More information and application guidance is available on the Foundation’s website.
The deadline for applications is Monday 7th August 2017.
