The Global EbA (Ecosystem-based Adaptation) Fund was established to provide rapid and targeted support through seed capital for innovative approaches to Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA). The Global EbA Fund grants should be complementary to and add value to existing work, by filing a gap in an existing project, enhancing the impact of an investment in EbA, contributing to policy upscaling of EbA, and/or serving to develop a larger proposal to another funding mechanism. The Global EbA will make contribution from USD50,000 to USD250,000 to selected projects that target one or more countries which are eligible for official development assistance (ODA) or global or thematic projects.
