5 January 2023


We are looking for National Implementing Partners in 11 countries to work on the project Locally-led humanitarian solutions: Building resilience in fragile contexts affected by climate change in close collaboration with GNDR.   


The specific objective of this call-for-applications is to identify organisations in the following countries:

Africa & West Asia – Yemen, Iraq, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo

Asia –   Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh

LAC –   Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras


The selected 11 National Implementing partners will be expected to take their learning and then use it to capacity build another CSO in their country as part of the secondary phase. This also stands as pre-condition for this application.

The project intervention aims to provide evidence that humanitarian actions in response to climate change impacts:

  • are informed by and respond to the local needs
  • provide enabling mechanisms to the communities most at risk to take informed actions
  • include the involvement of local voices in humanitarian mechanisms and decision-making
  • are equitable and inclusive especially for women, children, people with disabilities as well as displaced communities, and 
  • consider a layered and sequenced approach to actions, can contribute greatly to addressing the gaps in the triple nexus space

This evidence will then be used to advocate for permanent change across humanitarian mechanisms and policies, and subsequently within all relevant humanitarian actions.
