Canada Fund for Local Initiatives – Tanzania (2024)

Deadline: 23-Feb-2024The Office of the High Commission of Canada in Tanzania is pleased to launch its annual call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

The CFLI is a program designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the relevant Canadian diplomatic mission. The CFLI also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada and recipient countries and their civil societies, by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavours.Thematic Priorities
  • All projects must align with the following CFLI thematic priority:
    • Environment & climate action, focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
      • More specifically, through strengthening environmental governance and enhancing women’s participation in decision making, protection and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems, adoption of climate-smart agricultural practices, and reducing pollution.
      Growth that works for everyone, including women’s economic rights, decent jobs and entrepreneurship and safeguarding economic gains.
      • More specifically, projects may focus on economic capacity building for small and medium enterprises to become more competitive and innovative, enabling enhanced trade competitiveness in regional or global markets.
  • Funding Information
  • CFLI contributions range from $15,000 to $40,000 Canadian dollars.
  • Gender-Based Analysis
  • In 2017, Canada adopted its Feminist International Assistance Policy to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls as the most effective way to reduce poverty and build a more inclusive, peaceful and prosperous world. In alignment with this policy, the CFLI project application process now requires a gender-based analysis (GBA). The purpose of this change is to enhance the gender equality outcomes of the CFLI program.A GBA will require applicants to:
    • consider how women, girls, men, and boys are affected differently by the problem their project is aiming to address, ensuring, at the same time, that the project does not cause harmconsult women and/or girls in the development of their project proposalensure that the views of those women and/or girls inform the project’s design
    Note that consultations can include, but are not limited to, speaking to women and girls from the local community, women and other individuals who work for civil society organizations that have worked in the local community and female and male decision and change makers who have knowledge of the local community.Inadequate completion of a GBA may affect the consideration of your proposal.
