Call for Proposals: Enhancing Women's Participation and Leadership in Climate Security and Justice in Nigeria

Submission deadline: 03 May 2024

Climate change is now impacting all corners of the world. Over 3.3 billion people are “highly vulnerable” to climate change, according to a recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Nigeria continues to experience many social and security challenges. The country has experienced several conflicts and emergencies, including the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast, inter-communal clashes, the farmer-herder conflict in middle belt, banditry and kidnapping as well as separatist movements in the Niger Delta and the southeast. A combination of conflict climate change-induced crisis like heavy and unexpected rainfall, flash floods, landslides, and gully erosion, politics and policy crisis (including elevated inflation since 2023) has caused hardship and humanitarian crisis characterized by forced population displacement, loss of livelihood, and worsened climate insecurity.

Special attention will be provided to applications supporting women and girls multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination, such as those marginalized and excluded due to poverty, ethnicity, disability, age, geography, migratory status, HIV status, among others.
