High Commission of Canada in Mozambique: Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) 2018-19
Deadline: 11 May 2018
The High Commission of Canada in Mozambique has launched a call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) 2018-19. The CFLI is also a major tool of the government of Canada to strengthen relations between Canada, civil society and the local communities, helping to build networks of contacts around the world.
Proposed projects must align with one of the following six CFLI Thematic Priorities for 2018-19:
- Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
- Inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
- Peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace.
- Human dignity, covering health, education and nutrition.
- Growth that works for everyone, including women’s economic rights, decent jobs and entrepreneurship, investing in the poorest and most vulnerable, and safeguarding economic gains.
- Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
- Normally, applicants may apply for up to a maximum of C$50,000 in funding per project.
- The average contribution in the past has been in the range of C$10,000 to C$25,000 (or equivalent in country’s local currency).
- In exceptional cases, projects of up to C$100,000 may be considered.
- Within the context of eligible countries, eligible recipients include:
- Local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations;
- Local academic institutions working on local projects;
- International, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities;
- Municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects;
- Canadian non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations that are working on local development activities.
- The majority of CFLI funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including non-governmental organizations) and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations can be eligible for funding, provided they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI. Similarly, municipal, regional or national government institutions may receive funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects, which deliver measurable results.
