GSMA Innovation Fund for Climate Resilience and Adaptation 2.0 - Application Portal
The GSMA Innovation Fund for Climate Resilience and Adaptation 2.0 (“the Fund”) will provide grants and additional support to for-profit small and growing enterprises, including start-ups, that leverage mobile and digital technology to pilot or scale solutions that help communities in LMICs to build resilience towards the impact of climate change. The fund will also strive to support solutions that contribute to climate resilience through activities strengthening biodiversity.
The objective of the Fund is to test and generate insights from innovative use-cases, partnerships and business models in selected geographies in order to improve the sustainability and scalability of digital enabled solutions that make a positive impact on low-income populations and those who are most vulnerable to current or future climate risks.
This initiative is funded by UK aid from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and is supported by the GSMA and its members.
