1) Objective

The Loss and Damage Youth Grantmaking Council (LDYGC), in partnership with the Climate Justice Resilience Fund (CJRF) and Open Society Foundations, has launched a new grant cycle with a fund of $275,000. This initiative is focused on supporting concrete actions to mitigate the impact of climate change in vulnerable communities. By ‘concrete actions,’ the council refers to tangible measures aimed at addressing loss and damage caused by climate change.

The grant prioritizes projects that go beyond capacity building and awareness campaigns, focusing instead on direct interventions in four thematic areas: recovery and rehabilitation after extreme weather events, relocation and resettlement of communities affected by slow-onset events, addressing non-economic loss and damage effects, and addressing economic loss and damage effects. These areas encompass a range of projects from rebuilding infrastructure and restoring ecosystems to preserving cultural heritage and providing mental health support. The initiative aims to empower youth-led organizations to implement long-term, impactful projects that address the multifaceted challenges posed by climate change.

2) Eligibility

Eligible applicants are youth-led organizations with a lead applicant aged 35 or below. The organization should operate locally or nationally, particularly in areas most affected by climate change. Projects must align with the grant’s focus on concrete actions to address loss and damage from climate change. Proposals can be submitted in English, French, or Spanish, and should not exceed three pages.

3) Location

Actions can take place in Africa, Asia Pacific and America.

4) Budget

The total grant amount is $275,000, distributed among 9 projects. This includes two large grants of $50,000 each and seven medium-sized grants of $25,000 each. Large grants support long-term projects with broad reach, while medium-sized grants are for more specific, flexible initiatives.

5) Application

Applications opened on February 1, 2024, and the deadline is March 15, 2024. Winners will be announced in June 2024. Applications must be submitted through the provided Google form in the applicant’s preferred language (English, French, or Spanish). The application process involves selecting the preferred language on the form and answering questions presented in that language.
