Grants for Innovation (“G4I”) encourages innovation to scale up low-carbon technologies that contribute towards the Millennium Development Goals, including innovations which enable such projects to overcome financial, social and legal barriers. Innovations are expected to:

have strong potential for social impact, in particular poor populations

have strong potential for climate change mitigation

be feasible for scale-up, or replication in other areas or countries

be built on a robust business model

Applications are invited from NGOs, social enterprises and other development-focused organizations. The Grant is US$60,000 per project; G4I will award up to two Grants in 2013. G4I is administered by Nexus-Carbon for Development, a non-profit cooperative of development organizations that support vulnerable communities by scaling up successful climate-friendly projects. Nexus Members are award-winning development organizations, including social enterprises and NGOs, recognized for their significant impact in their fields.

The deadline is 31 August 2013. The Official Rules is attached here. You can download the Application Form from the link here. For more information, please visit www.nexus-c4d.org. For clarifications which are not found in the documents, please contact
