The Egis Foundation invites NGOs and non-profit organizations to submit their ideas and projects for its annual international call for projects on the theme of climate change adaptation. The 2023 International Call for Projects is the second call for projects conducted by the Egis Foundation. It invites NGOs and non-profit organizations to present their ideas and projects on the topic of adaptation to climate change. In the call for projects, the three points listed below will be carefully analysed in order to assess the alignment of the proposed projects with their objectives:
- Adaptation to climate change impacts: They seek to support projects that have an impact on the consequences of climate change by reducing the vulnerability and exposure of populations and/or ecosystems to present and future climate risks. They are therefore primarily looking for projects that aim to improve resilience and adaptive capacity in the face of climate change, but these projects may also take into account co-benefits such as the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the restoration or protection of biodiversity.
- Systemic and long-term approach: They are looking for the implementation of sustainable solutions. For this reason, the approach to climate change that they defend is not thematic but systemic. The search of complementary objectives linked to other components of people’s living environments is strongly encouraged (social co-benefits). The desired approach must focus on resolving the causes of the problems and/or enabling the population to free themselves from the difficulties without generating dependency.
- Focus on vulnerable populations and threatened ecosystems: They seek to pay particular attention to vulnerable groups (women, children, etc.)or those in precarious situations. They are looking for actions that strengthen their capacity to be actors of their own destiny while respecting their dignity and sovereignty. In the same way, they favour actions that consider the protection of ecosystems threatened by extreme climatic phenomena and by human activity.
It is open to organisations based in France and in Europe, but also to local organisations based in other countries that wish to apply directly, provided that the project is in line with the proposed theme and meets the stated criteria.
Actions can take place in various countries worldwide.
Grants may range from 80,000€ to 600,000€.
The application is open from 10 May 2023 at 09:00 to 05 June 2023 at 14:00 CEST. Final decision on the allocation of the grants by the Board of Directors is taken from 09 to 28 October.
