Competition on Climate Adaptation Grants for NGOs

The Development Marketplace is a competitive grant program administered by the World Bank.

The global competition is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and additional DM partners.

It aims to identify 20 to 25 innovative, early-stage projects addressing climate adaptation.

The DM is a unique opportunity to turn your idea into reality; if selected your project could receive up to US$200,000 in grant funding for implementation over two years.
