Deadline: August 31, 2013
Applications are invited from NGOs, social enterprises and other development-focused organizations for the 2013 Grants for Innovation (“G4I”). The Grant is US$60,000 per project; G4I will award up to two Grants in 2013. G4I encourages innovation to scale up low-carbon technologies that contribute 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
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.
