UK PACT is pleased to announce the launch of the first Malaysia-UK PACT Call for Proposals. Through this call, UK PACT will allocate funding to transformational projects that help tackle climate change.
UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) is a unique capacity-building programme running from 2018 to 2022. Funded by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) through the UK’s International Climate Finance, it works in partnership with countries with high emission reduction potential to support them to implement and increase their ambitions for tackling climate change.
- Successful projects will be awarded grants within the range of £100,000 up to a maximum of £375,000. With an estimated start date of April 2021, all projects will deliver capacity-building support in the priority sectors.
- Malaysia-UK PACT welcomes expressions of interest to develop innovative projects in three sectors: green finance, climate action enabling environment and energy. They will be looking for evidence of how project proposals can contribute to both emissions reductions and economic recovery objectives in Malaysia.
