Call for Applications!

Are you working in the cocoa, maize, or livestock (cattle, sheep, goats) sectors in a member state of the Organisation of African, Caribbean, and Pacific states? Are you from the private sector, with a high interest in resilience, competitiveness, or direct supply linkages with off-takers for sustainability? Do you have an innovative idea that makes the above-mentioned value chains less fragmented, more inclusive, particularly for women and youth, sustainable, and profitable? This also includes innovations for by-products of the sectors.

Then this Matching Grant Fund for climate resilient value chains is a unique opportunity for you to realize your goal! The maximal contribution channeled through GIZ will account for up to 50% of the total project budget and can go up to 200.000 €.
