New contest on reshaping development pathways in Least Developed Countries
What are the most innovative, scalable solutions and best practices to restore degraded landscapes (agro-, silvo-, pastoral and natural ecosystems), helping vulnerable communities in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to become more climate resilient?
We’re excited to announce that the Global Resilience Partnership, UK aid, and UN Climate Resilience Initiative A2R have launched a new contest on MIT Climate CoLab! To reshape development pathways for the overall achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, they are calling for innovative, scalable solutions and best practices to restore degraded ecosystems, helping vulnerable communities in LDCs become more climate resilient.
The UN Climate Resilience Initiative and Global Resilience Partnership will provide the Judges’ Choice Winner with funding for capacity development in the amount worth USD 10,000. The Judges’ Choice Winner will also be invited to travel (expenses-paid trip, including flight, accommodation, and meals) to the UN SG Climate Summit in September 2019 in New York to present their winning proposal.
The global community is invited to submit proposals until July 1, 2019 at 11:59 PM (ET)!
