CBF launches 4th Call for Proposal under climate change program, Dominica eligible to benefit from US$14M grant fund


Dominica National Conservation Trust Fund (DNCTF) sign Pre-Financing Agreement with Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) in September this year

The Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) today announced its most recent Call for Proposals, through its Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) Facility with up to US$14 million in grants available.

Through this fourth Call for Proposal, the CBF is seeking applications for projects that utilize Ecosystem-based Adaptation approaches—the use of natural habitats and ecosystem solutions as part of an overall strategy that help people to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change.

The EbA Facility has over 45 million Euros from the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety through KfW.

To date, the Facility has approved US$36 million in grant funding. A total of US$22 million was awarded to implement 19 projects under the first two calls for proposals, while another US$14 million has been earmarked for the approved projects from the third call for proposals.

“The EbA Facility has always used an open call for proposals approach which has proven successful in identifying projects that positively impact climate change adaptation efforts on the ground in a range of communities across the region”, said Climate Change Program Manager Dr Ulrike Krauss.

Available grants range from US$250,000 up to US$2 million. Eligible organizations include local, national, regional and international institutions such as civil society organizations, government agencies, universities, research organizations, community-based organizations, and United Nations agencies in eligible countries and territories.

“We invite eligible organizations to submit their Concept Notes using our online portal before the call for proposals closes on 24 January 2023. , Dr Krauss said. The CBF also encourages interested persons to attend a virtual workshop on 30 November 2022 where we will provide additional information on the kind of proposals we are looking for, highlight common shortfalls, and answer questions on preparation of Concept Notes for this Call for Proposals

Countries and territories that are eligible for this Call are Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Proposals for regional projects are encouraged and can involve Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Trinidad and Tobago.

    The climate has been changing since the beginning of time. Man has very little to do with it. Constant perpetuation of the ‘climate change fraud’ to further enslave the population.
