Climate and Clean Air Coalition

Deadline: 30th April 2024.

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition has launched a call for proposals seeking solutions to pressing challenges for short-lived climate pollutant mitigation in the agriculture sector.

Climate and Clean Air CoalitionThis call aims to bridge critical information, implementation, and finance gaps in the sector to create enabling environments for SLCP mitigation.

Proposed Projects

Proposed projects are required to cover one of the following focus areas:

  • Focus area 1: Advancing implementation of sustainable intensification technologies for livestock, such as breeding, feed improvements, and herd health.
  • Focus area 2: Shifting agriculture subsidies away from water (for rice production), fertilizer use, and livestock numbers towards climate-smart practices.
  • Focus area 3: Using digital technology in agriculture extension services to improve awareness of climate mitigation measures in the livestock and rice sectors.
  • Focus area 4: Piloting innovative business solutions for incorporating agricultural methane into voluntary carbon markets.
  • Focus area 5: Piloting new models for straw management to decrease agricultural residue burning.

Funding

  • Estimated project cost: up to $1,000,000

  • The CCAC can only fund non-profit entities, which include non-governmental organizations (NGOs), intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), and government entities.

For-profit entities are not eligible to receive CCAC funding, though may participate in projects as stakeholders, collaborators, or co-funders.

  • Be linked to existing priorities, efforts or needs within the targeted region, country, or state
  • Have the resources available to implement the project, if and once it is approved
  • Provide a reasonable estimate of the project’s SLCP mitigation potential and the resulting co-benefits for climate, air quality, and development
  • Demonstrate no negative impact on vulnerable populations and biodiversity, and, if possible, generate a positive impact

Multidisciplinary collaborations, as well as the involvement of appropriate private sector stakeholders, are encouraged.
