On 6th July we supported the Scottish Government and Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland on an information session for the Climate Justice Innovation Fund, launched earlier this month. More than 20 organisations were represented at the event.
Presentation slides and a very helpful Q&A summary from the event can be found on the Lloyds TSB website here.
The Scottish Government gave an overview of Climate Justice, its aims and the history of Climate Justice funding. Lloyds TSB focused on the criteria for applying, the assessment process, and hints and tips on a successful application.
Along with Scotland’s International Development Alliance we offered support on applications as well as connecting organisations together, both in Scotland and in partner countries, through our membership forums.
Further Information about the CJIF:
The Climate Justice Innovation Fund (CJIF) is open to any Scottish-based organisation, working in partnership with in-country partner(s), to support the delivery of climate justice-related projects which demonstrate innovation in the field.
CJIF projects should be delivered in one or more of the Scottish Government’s International Development sub-Saharan priority countries (Malawi, Zambia or Rwanda), with awards of up to £100,000 for project grants over a maximum three year period.
Projects must also support the beneficiary country’s own development priorities.
The Scottish Government particularly welcomes applications:
- from currently under-represented groups such as diaspora representatives;
- from small organisations with a turnover of £150k or less
- from Scottish organisations collaborating to deliver a project
If you would like support on an application or connecting with potential partners in Scotland or Malawi please contact Kathy.
The closing date for applications is 7th August 2017, with successful projects to commence in November 2017.
