In this call, they focus on the interrelations between water and climate and taking into account their links, in order to integrate the protection of this natural resource in the fight against global warming. The links between Water and Climate have been regularly demonstrated and highlighted, the disruption of one or the other modifying the distribution of water on Earth.

The aim of this call for proposals is to learn from these projects, both on the threats to the water cycle caused by human activities and on the actions taken to protect the balance of this cycle in the fight against climate change.

Fields of Action

  • Awareness raising, information, advocacy, capacity building, legal work, research, field activities and initiatives, or the establishment / strengthening of management systems, governance, way of life and habitat, for the preservation of the water resource and its access.
  • Whatever the types of activities that the submitted project provides, the actions must include the existing relationships between water and climate. Support will not be given to projects that are purely scientific or technical, nor purely ecological or environmental. The human being must be at the center of the project (based, for example, on notions of environmental justice, of environmental inequalities, dealing with the dispossession or repossession of populations’ natural resources etc.).
  • Projects centered on making a film or documentary and then broadcasting it will not be considered. Films or documentaries can however be a minor part of a much wider project.
