The United Nations Women's Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) is excited to announce the launch of a new Call for Proposals under its Women and Climate Security Initiative for the Pacific region. This funding opportunity is targeted at local women’s rights and women-led civil society organisations (CSOs) in Fiji, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu. The initiative focuses on projects that address climate security challenges in conflict settings, with an emphasis on amplifying women’s leadership roles in preventing climate-related conflicts and injustices, as well as their involvement in economic and political decision-making processes.

Funding Details

The funding is divided into two main streams:

Programmatic Funding: Amounts ranging from $30,000 to $200,000 are available to support the programmatic activities of CSOs. These funds aim to enhance the meaningful participation and decision-making power of women in conflict prevention and response. Additionally, they support improved socio-economic recovery and political participation of women and young women in peacebuilding contexts.

Institutional Funding: Smaller grants ranging from $2,500 to $30,000 are offered to help reinforce the institutional capacities of women’s rights and women-led organisations. These grants are intended to support organisations working on climate-related conflict prevention and climate-related economic and political decision-making in the Pacific region. The goal is to ensure these organisations can sustain themselves and strengthen their impact over time.

Application Deadline

Interested organisations should note that the application deadline is 24 May 2024. It is crucial to prepare and submit proposals by this date to be considered for funding.

We urge all eligible organisations and networks to spread the word about this valuable funding opportunity. By sharing this information widely, you can help ensure that organisations working on the front lines of climate security and women's empowerment in the Pacific have the resources they need to make a significant impact.

Please share this announcement within your networks and support us in promoting this call for proposals on social media to reach a broader audience.
