CJRF Grant Program: Promoting Community-led, Rights-based Approaches to Resilience-building
 

The Climate Justice Resilience Fund is a grant making initiative dedicated to helping women, youth, and indigenous peoples create and share their own solutions for resilience. We believe that lasting climate resilience must start with those communities first hit by climate change. We help communities reduce risks, manage shocks, rebound, and continue charting a path to sustainable development. For more information on our strategy, please review our strategic framework.

The Climate Justice Resilience Fund is inviting applications to make grants for community-led, social justice approaches to climate change adaptation and resilience-building.

CJRF gives grants to women, youth, and indigenous peoples to create and share their own solutions for resilience.

For its initial grant making, the CJRF will focus on three regions where climate change is already affecting landscapes and livelihoods: East Africa, the Bay of Bengal, and the Arctic.

Pillars of Work

CJRF support flows to five “pillars” of work:

  • Advocacy: Building the advocacy skills of women, youth and indigenous peoples, and securing their greater participation in climate change decision-making at local, national and international levels.
  • Access to Information: Improving access to information so that communities better understand how climate change affects their natural resources, livelihoods, and cultural traditions.
  • Local Initiatives: Supporting community-driven climate-resilient development solutions.
  • Movement Infrastructure: Providing general operating support to community-led organizations in order to strengthen civil society structures for networking, knowledge sharing, and community engagement.
  • Leadership Development: Increasing the skills of emerging leaders among women, youth and indigenous communities so that they can enhance collective action around climate justice.

Project Entry Points

CJRF grants focus on four inter-related issues through which climate change may profoundly affect the lives and prospects of their selected constituencies, namely:

  • Water Access
  • Food Security and Sovereignty
  • Sustainable Livelihoods
