1) Objective

The UNDP’s Collaborative Engagement with Civil Society on Climate Action, funded by the UK Government, aims to empower civil society organizations (CSOs) in Asia-Pacific to actively participate in climate action. This initiative recognizes the critical role of CSOs in fostering partnerships, enhancing transparency, and holding institutions accountable for climate policies.

By encouraging innovative, practical solutions and multi-stakeholder collaboration, the program seeks to address climate change impacts exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on policy outcomes, data transparency, gender-responsiveness, and social inclusion in climate finance.

2) Eligibility

Eligible applicants include registered non-profit organizations such as civil society organizations, think tanks, educational institutions, community-based organizations, NGOs, and Indigenous Peoples organizations. Applicants must have a proven record of at least four years in project management, policy research, or similar fields, and be registered as per their home country’s legal requirements. Experience in managing comparable budget projects is an asset. Coalitions are welcome but must meet specific experience criteria.

3) Location

The program is open to CSOs or coalitions from Cambodia, Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. However, grants may not be awarded in every country or might be awarded to multiple CSOs in a single country.

4) Budget

Each grant is capped at USD 40,000, with applicants encouraged to propose lower budgets. Co-funding and in-house contributions are strongly encouraged. Eligible costs include salaries, workshops, equipment, and other direct project expenses, while infrastructure and overhead costs are ineligible.

5) Application

Applications must include a signed submission form, CVs of project staff, letters of appreciation or recommendation, references, a Results and Resources Framework, and a Budget Form. Submissions should be sent electronically to lowvaluegrants.cfn.2024@undp.org by 29 February 2024. A Q&A webinar is scheduled for 15 February 2024 for interested applicants. The selection process involves a Grant Selection Board, with decisions based on specific criteria and scoring.
