Call for Expression of Interest

Supporting Needs-Based Advocacy on Adaptation in Africa

We are seeking expressions of interest from non-governmental organisations (NGOs) with a strong presence and operational capacity in Mali, Burkina Faso, Zambia, Senegal and Ethiopia. The selected NGOs will play a pivotal role in implementing several components of the project Supporting Needs-Based Advocacy on Adaptation in Africa.  

Project Objective: The project aims to elevate needs-based adaptation in global and regional policy spaces and contribute significantly to increasing global, regional, and national ambition on adaptation that responds to Africa’s special needs and circumstances. It seeks to empower stakeholders and policymakers with the necessary tools and knowledge to advocate for effective adaptation strategies.  

Through sub-granting, PACJA will leverage its leadership experience on climate justice in the region to run a massive advocacy initiative on adaptation in Africa; the alliance has strategically positioned itself and is supporting various national/regional inter-ministerial climate discourse processes by providing compelling evidence to enable stakeholders (including Negotiators) to make informed decisions. 

Components for Implementation: The NGOs will be responsible for the following key components: 

  1. Policy Advocacy: Develop and promote policy frameworks that support needs-based adaptation measures. 
  2. Capacity Building: Organize workshops and training sessions to strengthen the skills of local advocates. 
  3. Research and Development: Conduct comprehensive studies to identify the unique adaptation needs of each region. 
  4. Community Engagement: Facilitate dialogues between communities, policymakers, and international bodies. 
  5. Monitoring and Evaluation: Implement robust mechanisms to assess the impact of adaptation initiatives. 

Eligibility Criteria: 

  • Proven experience in climate change adaptation projects. 
  • Established networks within the specified African countries. 
  • Ability to mobilise resources and engage with a wide range of stakeholders. 

Submission Guidelines: NGOs interested should submit the following required documents online only.
