LandCam Call for Proposals: Inviting Cameroonian CSOs for Small Grants Scheme 2018-2019
Deadline: 1 October 2018
As part of the LandCam project, CED (Center for Environment and Development), Relufa (Network Against Hunger) and IIED (International Institute for Environment and Development) are seeking proposals for its Small Grants Scheme Round 2018-2019.
The small grants scheme will enable Cameroonian civil societyorganisations (CSOs) to access funds to fill gaps in approaches to securing land and resource rights, linking local-level work to national reform debates, responding to knowledge needs as they are identified by local stakeholders, building capacity of different actors on effective, inclusive and transparent land governance, and testing tools for analysis or action. The focus is on potential solutions to recognising and securing land and resources rights. Testing approaches to increase women’s participation in land governance and providing opportunities for women and indigenous communities to benefit from local land access processes is highly encouraged.
- To strengthen capacity and pilot approaches to improve land tenure security in selected sites that enable stakeholder voices to be heard and rights to be secured ;
- To create spaces for more informed, effective and inclusive dialogue on designing and implementing reforms; and
- To track land and natural resource governance, including legal reforms, and share lessons nationally and internationally.
- A total amount of 118.000.000 FCFA over four years (2018-2021) is available for the LandCam small grants scheme. The total available funding for 2018-2019 funding round is 29.500.000FCFA.
- The small grants scheme will enable eligible Cameroonian CSOs to apply for grants from 3.000.000 to 19.000.000 FCFA and for project durations of two to 12 months.
Eligible Grant Activities
The small grant scheme will support activities that:
- Deepen understanding of land and natural resource governance challenges and possible solutions;
- Deepen understanding of implications and outcomes for different social groups, including gender dimensions, and effective ways for addressing social differentiation;
- Test the design, scalability and replicability of a tool for analysis or action;
- Promote dialogue at the local level (e.g. community-local government, community company).
- Eligible recipients will be legally registered Cameroonian civil society or research organisations.
- An organisation may only submit one proposal in each annual cycle of the Small Grants Scheme. Due to the nature of the scheme and the emphasis on providing small grants, consortium applications are not allowed.
