The CFLI is a program designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the relevant Canadian embassy or high commission. The CFLI also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada and recipient countries and their civil societies, by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavours.
In Kyrgyzstan, while applications addressing 1 of the 5 CFLI priorities (see below) will be considered, preference will be given to proposals that aim to promote human rights, media freedom and democratic principles. Special priority will be given to applications that promote women’s rights and the rights of the most vulnerable and marginalized people, particularly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex people, including through action against gender-based violence.
All projects must align with at least one of the following CFLI thematic priorities:
- gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
- inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
- peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace.
- growth that works for everyone, including women’s economic rights, decent jobs and entrepreneurship, investing in the
- poorest and most vulnerable, and safeguarding economic gains.
- environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
Eligible are: (1) local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations; (2) local academic institutions working on local projects; (3) international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities; (4) municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects; and (5) Canadian non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations that are working on local development activities through a local office.
Actions must take place in Kyrgyzstan.
Proposed project value should range between 15,000 and 50,000 Canadian dollars and should be directly equivalent to the proposed level of effort and the organizational capacity to deliver the proposed results.
The deadline for submission is June 9, 2023, at 23:59 (GMT+6). Applications submitted after this deadline will not be considered. Proposals should be submitted electronically to the following email: ASTNAGR2@international.gc.ca
