This Open Call for Proposals CRAF’d is seeking projects that use analytics and artificial intelligence for more impactful crisis action in anticipation, prevention, and response to the consequences of climate fragility risks.
Around the globe, the consequences of climate-related natural disaster events, including more frequent and extreme heat waves, droughts, floods, or rising sea levels, contribute to the destabilization of already fragile contexts and affect people living in these disproportionately.
Unlocking the full potential of data is key to understanding the ways in which climate-related disaster events spur complex risks in fragile contexts. At the same time, data availability and sophisticated analytical tools help policymakers, practitioners, and researchers to understand, formulate, and assess appropriate and context-specific responses for earlier, faster, more targeted, and dignified crisis action that matches people’s needs with solutions.
- Participating UN organizations, who have signed the CRAF’d Memorandum of Understanding, and Non-UN organizations are eligible to apply for CRAF’d funding through this Open Call.
- Non-UN organizations can access CRAF’d funding either through a Managing Agent or through the CRAF’d direct access modality. Access modalities will be determined on a case-by-case basis when a non-UN organization passes the first stage of the application process and is starts developing a project proposal.
Grant size: $500,000 to $750,000, Total – $ 3 million.
Deadline: November 25th, 2022
