1) Objective

The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) supports small-scale but high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with the six action areas that guide the Government of Canada’s international assistance. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the Embassy of Canada in Amman, Jordan. All projects must align with at least one of the following CFLI thematic priorities

  • Championing human rights, inclusive and accountable governance, democracy and fundamental freedoms, peaceful pluralism, and respect for diversity.
  • Addressing sexual and gender-based violence, including technology-facilitated gender-based violence, taking into account the role and engagement of men and boys.
  • Increasing participation in decision-making and political processes, including parliamentary and municipal elections by women, youth and marginalized groups (e.g. people with disabilities, refugees); addressing and preventing election-related violence against women.
  • Creating and maintaining a safe and enabling environment for civil society and the media.
  • Promoting respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms—including freedom of religion or belief, of expression, of peaceful assembly and of association; contribute to the elimination of discrimination, racism, intolerance and persecution.
  • Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
  • Strengthening environmental governance and enhancing women’s participation in decision making.
  • Developing environmental practices that support healthy, adaptive and resilient communities.
