About the Organization

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition is a voluntary partnership of governments, intergovernmental organizations, businesses, scientific institutions and civil society organizations committed to improving air quality and protecting the climate through actions to reduce short-lived climate pollutants.

Our global network includes hundreds of state and non-state partners, and hundreds of local actors carrying out activities across economic sectors.

About the Grant

The CCAC’s 2030 Strategy aims to drive significant reductions in short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) this decade to simultaneously improve air quality and slow temperature rise in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

These 2030 goals are achievable using existing technologies and practices. The SLCPs methane and black carbon can be reduced by 45% and 70% respectively (from 2010 levels). Another SLCP, hydrofluorocarbons, can be almost completely eliminated by 2050.

While efforts to reduce SLCP emissions are advancing, mitigation must be scaled up across multiple emitting sectors, and quickly, to reach our 2030 goals. In response, the CCAC has developed engagement strategies targeting the main SLCP emitting sectors. These strategies set out mechanisms and structures to reduce emissions this decade.

This call for proposals seeks projects to accelerate implementation of the CCAC sector engagement strategies. Projects should lay the groundwork for scaled up mitigation of SLCP emissions by demonstrating the desirability, viability, and feasibility of a mitigation solution or approach across a country, sector or region.

Projects should propose and pilot an innovative approach to mitigating short-lived climate pollutant emissions in at least one of the main SLCP emitting sectors - agriculture, cooling, fossil fuels, heavy-duty vehicles and engines, household energy, or waste. The proposed approach must align with the actions and goals outlined in the relevant CCAC sector engagement strategy and should include at least one of the following:

  • Technical or technology solution
  • Economic incentive or business model 
  • Behavioral or social change
  • Regulation or regulatory enforcement regime
  • Solution to unlock finance and investment
  • Global or regional strategy for sector transformation

Projects are expected to create the enabling conditions for scaled up implementation of the proposed approach. To achieve this, projects must:  

  • Address a clear and relevant economic, strategic, or social need
  • Demonstrate support, ownership, or commitment from relevant stakeholders 
  • Target a defined geographic area, sector, or population
  • Take a holistic, system-wide approach
  • Have a plan for sustaining results beyond the lifetime of the project
  • Demonstrate the potential for large-scale and long-term impact

Multidisciplinary collaborations, as well as the involvement of appropriate private sector stakeholders, are encouraged.

Expected outcomes -

Projects should be able to achieve the following outcomes by project end or soon after:  

  • The SLCP mitigation approach is proven viable through small-scale implementation, with potential risks and gaps identified
  • The SLCP mitigation approach is recognized, endorsed, or adopted by the targeted government authorities and/or sector stakeholders
  • Targeted stakeholders have the relevant knowledge and/or capacity to implement the SLCP mitigation approach 
  • Additional funding sources are identified and/or catalyzed to implement the SLCP mitigation approach at scale

Who can Apply

The CCAC can only fund non-profit entities, which include non-governmental organizations (NGOs), intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), and government authorities. For-profit entities may only participate in projects as stakeholders, co-funders, or end users.

Applicants are encouraged to include for-profit entities in the development of the project proposal and/or during project implementation if their ownership of the proposed solution is key to the project’s success. 

How to Apply

Eligible applicants are invited to apply before the deadline by downloading and completing the Application Form and Budget Form. These completed forms along with other supporting documents should be submitted to the CCAC Secretariat at inbox secretariat@ccacoalition.org prior to the deadline.

Deadline: 10 September 2023
