Youth for Climate Action Project in Nepal

Youth for Climate Action Project in Nepal

Deadline: 9-Oct-22

Through the ‘Youth for Climate Action (YCA)’ project, the British Council in Nepal intends to offer Nepalese youth an opportunity to engage in community level climate action (raising awareness, mitigation and adaptation) to develop their knowledge, skills, and networks to offer better, more impactful, and sustainable solutions to pressing social, economic, and environmental climate related issues through engagement of local communities.

The project will support to bridge the gap of involvement of young women and men in policy advocacy and climate action, by building their capacity as well as providing them platforms and networks. The project will provide skills and capability to young people, provide connections to young changemakers to enable them to take actions, and provide them voice and skills to deliver outcomes in their communities.

The project’s anticipated impact and outcomes are as follows:

Impact: To support young people in Nepal to become agents of positive change to combat climate change.
Outcome 1: Quality and scale of engagement by young women and men on climate change awareness, adaptation and mitigation enhanced.
Outcome 2: Young women and men develop capacity to participate in policy making, planning, and monitoring; and demonstrate learning, and innovation through climatefocused social actions.
The project will have three outputs

Output 1: Youth-led, evidence-based policy engagements delivered
Output 2: Leadership and capacity of young women and men to engage in climate issues enhanced
Output 3: Climate-focused social actions implemented
