Name Deadline Description Eligibility
The Clean Oceans Initiative 2018-2023 The European Investment Banks (EIB) Clean Oceans Initiative (COI) jointly with the KfW group and the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) will provide up to €2 billion in lending over the next five years to help the public and private sectors implement sustainable projects that collect plastics and other waste and clean up wastewater before it reaches the ocean. The Clean Oceans Initiative targets the following areas: • Collection, recycling and disposal of plastics and other waste: projects that focus on plastics and waste collected on land, from rivers and from coastal areas of the seas. • Waste management in ports and harbours: projects that reduce the discharge of plastics and other waste into ports and harbours. • Innovative plastics: projects that reduce plastics discharge into oceans or develop new reusable/recyclable plastic products or bio-degradable plastic materials. • Wastewater collection and treatment: projects that help wastewater collection networks and treatment plants reduce the discharge of plastics into rivers and oceans. • Urban stormwater management systems: projects that prevent waste and plastics from entering waterways during rains and floods.
Climate lab call for ideas 19 December 2018 The Lab is seeking ideas for financial instruments that can unlock investment for climate mitigation and adaptation projects in developing countries. This year, the Lab has a special call for ideas that target sustainable agriculture for smallholders in West & Central Africa, sustainable energy access, blue carbon in coastal & marine ecosystems, and sustainable cities. Ideas that target other sectors will also be considered.
Global Climate City Challenge 28 February 2019 The Challenge is part of a new partnership under the umbrella of Global Urbis, an ambitious global initiative announced during the One Planet Summit in Paris in December 2017 that provides cities and local governments around the globe with technical assistance and financing for climate action. The Challenge is open to municipal and local authorities or entities such as municipal companies, utilities and local banks with an interest in addressing climate change.
