Kiwa Initiative, AFD, biodiversity and climate change adaptation in the Pacific: 2021 Call for Ideas open
The Kiwa Initiative aims to strengthen the climate change resilience of Pacific Island ecosystems, communities and economies through Nature-Based Solutions (NBS). Launched by AFD in 2020, the initiative is the product of a unique commitment driven by France and the European Union, with Canada, Australia and New Zealand also on board. The call for ideas for regional projects is now open until September 15th 2021.

With a €35M budget, the Kiwa Initiative aims to provide easier access to climate change adaptation funding for local and national governments, as well as for civil society and regional organizations in Pacific Island Countries and territories, including the three French overseas territories.

What is a regional project funded by the Kiwa Initiative?

Regional projects are between 1.5 and 5 million euros in grants. All projects must demonstrate their impacts in terms of climate change adaptation and biodiversity conservation through the use of Nature-based Solutions. A regional project involves at least two eligible countries or territories from the Pacific islands.

Who can apply for a regional project?

Potential project leaders will be able to benefit from technical assistance provided by the Pacific Community (SPC) or the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).
