Nexus Grants 2013: Call for Proposals

Deadline: 31 August 2013

Nexus-Carbon for Development has issued a call for proposals for the 2013 Grants for Innovation (“G41″) to provide funding for innovative projects that scale up low-carbon technologies contributing towards the  Millennium Development Goals, including innovations which enable such projects to overcome financial, social and legal barriers. Innovations are expected to:

-have strong potential for social impact, in particular poor populations

-have strong potential for climate change mitigation

-be feasible for scale-up, or replication in other areas or countries

-be built on a robust business model

Applications are invited from NGOs, social enterprises and other development-focused organizations. The Grant is US$60,000 per project; G4I will award up to two Grants in 2013.

G4I is administered by Nexus-Carbon for Development, a non-profit cooperative of development organizations that support vulnerable communities by scaling up successful climate-friendly projects. Nexus Members are award-winning development organizations, including social enterprises and NGOs, recognized for their significant impact in their fields.
