Gender-Responsive Climate Finance Window Feasibility study:

Grants range between USD 40,000 to USD 190,000.

Proof-of-concept:

Grants range between USD 190,000 to USD 500,000.

The Gender-Responsive Climate Finance Window is now accepting Concept Notes for its Fall Round (Cycle 5) until August 30, 2024. Interested applicants can apply here. Convergence will review all concept note submissions and will invite select applicants to submit a full proposal for funding consideration.

 

Scope of the Window

The Gender-Responsive Climate Finance Window, made possible with support from the Government of Canada, will award early-stage grant funding for the design and launch of innovative blended finance vehicles focused on the intersection of climate change and gender equality in emerging markets globally.

There has been a growing awareness of the climate-gender nexus over the past decade, but the field remains nascent. This Window aims to build the field by supporting a pipeline of climate-gender blended finance vehicles to reach bankability. Blended finance vehicles supported by the Window will be anchored by three key objectives:

The mobilization of private sector capital at scale to finance gender-responsive climate change mitigation and/or adaptation in emerging markets;

AND

The integration of gender equality into the design, implementation, and operations of vehicles, rather than as a “bolt-on feature” or “nice-to-have”;

AND

Strong alignment with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 (Gender Equality), SDG 13 (Climate Action), and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) at the minimum.
