Opportunity to be an implementing partner in a climate change impacts initiative

The Global Network of Civil Society Organisations for Disaster Reduction (GNDR) is looking for National Implementing Partners in 11 countries to work on the project Locally-led humanitarian solutions: Building resilience in fragile contexts affected by climate change in close collaboration with GNDR and provide evidence that humanitarian actions in response to climate change impacts affected communities including marginalized groups.

Application deadline: 5 February 2023

The project intervention aims to provide evidence that humanitarian actions in response to climate change impacts:

  • are informed by and respond to the local needs
  • provide enabling mechanisms to the communities most at risk to take informed actions
  • include the involvement of local voices in humanitarian mechanisms and decision-making
  • are equitable and inclusive especially for women, children, people with disabilities as well as displaced communities
  • consider a layered and sequenced approach to actions, can contribute greatly to addressing the gaps in the triple nexus space

This evidence will then be used to advocate for permanent change across humanitarian mechanisms and policies, and subsequently within all relevant humanitarian actions.

Locally led humanitarian solutions: Building resilience in fragile contexts affected by climate change is a Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance (USAID) funded project, for the period of 60 months starting 2nd December 2022. The project goal is to build and achieve Community resilience to natural disasters in fragile contexts affected by climate change impact.
