Global EbA Fund

The Global EbA Fund is a catalytic funding mechanism that supports projects that aim to create enabling environments for the uptake and mainstreaming of Ecosystem-based Adaptation to climate change. All proposed projects requesting funding must clearly contribute to one of the Global EbA Fund Strategic Objectives as well as fall under a maximum of two of the three action pillars. Projects must not focus primarily on field implementation in the scope of the proposal. Field interventions are allowed if clearly justified. Overall, while the Fund’s strategic objectives define the overarching aim and direction for the projects – the “What” – the action pillars focus on “How” these can be reached within the scope of the Fund.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated according to the following criteria and weighting:

Project Approach
Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) The degree to which the project takes an EbA approach & explicitly details how this will reduce the vulnerability or enhance the resilience of human communities to climate change impacts. This includes clearly identifying & defining the main climate impacts to be reduced with an enabling framework that will target these risks.                 30% 
Design and MethodologyThe project’s Theory of Change clearly shows a results chain that is logical and coherent to create an enabling framework for the reduction of identified climate risks.   The activities and timeline are appropriate and feasible for the proposed intervention.  The project follows a coherent logical framework with SMART indicators that are relevant to the specific outputs of the project and linked to appropriate data sources and reporting intervals.  The estimated budget for the project has a coherent relation with the project activities and timeline.
Gender & Social InclusionThe degree to which the project meaningfully involves diverse stakeholders (including women, youth, Indigenous Peoples & other marginalised groups), taking a participatory & inclusive approach to stakeholder involvement. This includes incorporating gender-disaggregated data where available & draws on the best available science & use of local, indigenous and/or traditional knowledge, as relevant. If the project will impact Indigenous Peoples, FPIC will be upheld. The project’s target groups and beneficiaries are detailed and clearly identified in the context of the identified risks
Innovative & Catalytic Contribution
The degree to which the project has innovative potential, in that the methods are yet to be tested in a different context or are yet to be proven. They can take the shape of an approach, a process, a practical tool, or an application. This includes the degree to which the project has catalytic potential by focusing on a targeted intervention/s that lead/s to a transformative shift at a systemic level at either global, regional, national, or sub-national scale (e.g. by working on policy/policy instruments; addressing a knowledge or capacity gap; developing financing mechanisms; shifting business models across value chains; addressing governance challenges, etc.).    30%
The degree to which the project has a clear approach for ensuring the sustainability of project activities beyond the project lifecycle – the project has an exit plan.  This includes promoting replication and/or upscaling of activities & outcomes. The project should clearly describe and evidence linkages to national, sub-national, regional and/or global policies & strategies, like NDCs & NAPS. The project should also clearly show synergies with other activities or projects within the geographic scope/target countries.     20%
Institutional Arrangements
The degree to which the applicant organisation has an established & appropriate structure, with sufficient financial capacity & internal controls already used in previous projects. This includes dedicated staff that have the technical capacity to implement project activities in addition to the applicant organisation and/or project consortia organisations demonstrating previous experience in implementing projects of similar scope & topic.
