Canada's Partnering for Climate Initiative

Canada's Partnering for Climate Initiative

On February 17, Canada's Minster of International Devlopment Harjit Sajjan announced that $315 million of Canada’s five-year, $5.3-billion climate finance commitment will be available for organizations in Canada and the Global South to partner on climate adaptation projects. Minister Sajjan said the funding model is going to be “as creative as possible” and cater to the needs of specific nations and regions. He hopes the program can give small, local organizations doing “tremendous work” the resources needed to have a “massive impact” in their area.

"This is a great day for women on the front lines of the climate crisis, especially women leading change in nature based solutions in their communities in the Global South. Thank you Minister Sajjan." -- Janet Siddall and Pat Dolan, Co-Chairs Grandmothers Advocacy Network
