EbA Facility First Call for Proposals: Utilizing Ecosystem-Based Adaptation Approaches

Deadline: 15 December 2018

The Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF), through its Ecosystem-based Adaptation Facility (EbA Facility), is seeking applications for projects that utilize Ecosystem-based Adaptation approaches to assist in climate change adaptation efforts within the marine and coastal zones of the insular Caribbean.

The EbA Facility resources are composed of a 25 million EURO initial contribution from the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety through KfW, the German Development Bank.

Strategic Objectives

  • To sustainably manage EbA supporting marine and coastal zone habitats, incorporating social and economic resilience to climate change.
  • To rehabilitate and restore EbA-supporting marine and coastal zone habitats incorporating social and economic resilience to climate change.

Projects Size

A maximum of ten million USD can be allocated under this first Call for Proposals, depending on the number and quality of proposals. Project application may range from 250,000 USD to 2,000,000 USD. Two tiers of funding will be supported.

  • Tier 1: Large grants. Large grants would be in the range of US $1M to US $2M, with some exceptions for larger grants involving multi-country/regional projects. These grants could cover projects that target broad geographic scales and larger-scale impacts (e.g. regional, national and seascape-scale projects). Grantees could be regional and national-level entities (government and non-governmental) with a track record of managing grants of this size in the last three years.
  • Tier 2: Medium-sized grants. Medium-sized grants would be in the range of US $250,000 to US $1M. These grants could cover projects that target smaller geographic scales and impacts (e.g. seascape-scale and site-scale projects) but could serve as models for scaling up approaches and Grantees could be primarily national and local-level entities (government, civil society), with a track record of managing grants of this size in the last three years.

Project Duration

The projects may be implemented in a maximum period of 36 months.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The EbA Facility is accessible to Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) qualified countries in the insular Caribbean, as determined by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development – Development Assistance Committee (OECD DAC). These countries are Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. In exceptional circumstances, additional Caribbean countries may receive support through their participation in multi-country projects. Multi-country projects are projects involving activities in more than one country, and the majority of countries (at least three quarters) must be on the list of eligible countries referenced above. These multi-country projects could benefit the following additional insular countries: The Bahamas, Barbados, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Trinidad and Tobago.
  • Applications will be accepted from eligible local, national, regional or international nongovernment organizations (NGOs), registered national conservation trust funds (NCTFs), community-based organizations (CBOs), government agencies, regional organizations, private sector companies, universities and other academic institutions, and consortia of organizations.
