1 October 2022 — The Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator (AFCIA) administered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has this week opened its second call for proposals for small grant funding.

The main objective of the grants – US$60,000 and US$125,000 – are to enhance local climate action and accelerate the delivery of targets outlined in the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals, through the implementation and diffusion of innovative locally-led adaptation practices, tools, and technologies.

The UNDP-administered AFCIA grant window, which counts with an additional financial contribution from the European Union, is managed through the AF-EU-UNDP Innovation Small Grant Aggregator Platform (ISGAP) Programme. The ISGAP Programme provides funding to applicants on a competitive basis, with selected grantees to operate and manage their projects by themselves with support from UNDP.

  • US$60,000 – for new, piloting projects, new solutions, new technology innovations, social innovations
  • US$125,000 – for organizations with established customers/beneficiaries base to scale-up or replicate solutions in different regions/spaces
