Overview:

Theme: ‘What knowledge could help strengthen the adaptive capacities of small family farms in Africa?’

The AfricaAdapt network is launching the 3rd Edition of its AfricaAdapt Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund that promotes local/endogenous knowledge and local knowledge sharing initiatives. See Expression of Interest and application form on "Project resources" tab.

What is the Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund?

The AfricaAdapt Innovation Fund will offer grants of up to US$9,000 for adaptation activities and original knowledge sharing initiatives, for sharing knowledge about adaptation on a local scale.

During the last 2 years, the Innovation Fund has already funded 15 projects in 14 African countries.

These projects are carried out by researchers, cooperatives and community organisations and the target beneficiaries are those communities directly affected by climate change.

This 3rd call for applications is specifically dedicated to small family farms of the continent in view of their importance in the livelihoods of the continent’s population. This call for applications will provide funding for concrete adaptation activities on the ground to generate new knowledge and to document innovative and promising agricultural practices for Africa.
