Community-based Climate Change Action Grants (CBCCAG)
Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT)
The Community-based Climate Change Action Grants support community-based adaptation and mitigation activities in developing countries in partnership with non-government organisations. The objectives of the program are to: increase the resilience of communities in developing countries to the unavoidable impacts of climate change; and reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions while also contributing to development priorities in the target communities.
AUS$16 million for 2011-2016
CBCCAG was implemented in partnership with multiple Non-Government Organisations, including: Oxfam, CARE Australia, Save the Children International, Act for Peace, Live & Learn, The Nature Conservancy and Plan International.
Funding support covered activities beginning by mid-2012 and finishing on or before 31 December 2014, however organizations that are successful in gaining funding through this grants program may be eligible for project extensions beyond 2014, with extensions of up to 2.5 years.
