Apply to be an implementation entity:

The implementation entities are essential to this project. Before you apply, please review this page thoroughly for information regarding the eligibility, requirements, commitments and responsibilities of the respective types of implementation entities.

Deadlines

For Category A and C: Please apply before 23.59 UTC on 29 January 2019.

For Category B: Please apply before 23.59 UTC on 1 February 2019.

 
 

Eligibility

An NGO, or a group of NGOs, or a group of individuals can apply to be an Implementation Entity (IE). This flexibility is important because YOUNGO welcomes organisations (of different sizes) and individuals equally - noting that there may not be active NGOs in certain countries, while the youth from those countries may still be active members of YOUNGO.

So for example, if an NGO X wants to apply for an IE role, they may do so as NGO X; however they can also do it as NGO X together with NGO Y - as a team; and alternatively a group of individuals can also form a team and apply to be an IE under a category.

Furthermore, one team (including its members) can apply only under one category. For example: if somone (as an individual or an organisation) is applying under Category A, they cannot apply to Category B or C. This is to ensure that opportunities are fairly distributed to a wide range of youth and youth organisations and not clustered to a few.

The selection under each category would be based on the merit and the applicant describing how they best-fit to the selection criteria / requirements that are highlighted under each category presented below. This would ensure uniformity in the selection processes.

Category B

Implementation Entities: On-ground Stakeholder Consultation

(IE-OSC)

This category of IEs would focus toward conducting Stakeholder consultations on ground in different countries and areas which would be important from optic of adaptation. About 10-11 Implementation Entities would be chosen under this category and thereby about 10-11 on-ground consultations would happen - balanced regionally, with focus on Global South and adaptation-centric countries.

The IEs chosen under this category would be broadly responsible for:

  1. Conducting one on-ground consultation: in form of an interactive workshop/session that would have youth and other valuable stakeholders from the area on issue of Adaptation. The guidance on format of workshop, and substantive topics to focus on would be provided by CCT. However, the organisation of this would be as per the circumstances best seen by the concerned IE, respecting national and regional circumstances;

  2. Ensuring that the participation in such consultation is gender-balanced, while promoting female participation;

  3. Generating outcome document, and ensuring its timely delivery, from such a consultation, which would then feed into the overall report. Such a document must align with guidance provided from CCT while ensuring reflection of national and regional circumstances;

  4. Ensuring all on-ground consultations are completed before 25 February 2019;

  5. Providing a summary of expenditures under indicated budget headings provided by CCT.

What are these on-ground consultations?

Basically, a one-day session – workshop, seminar, discussion, or a format best suited to the circumstances – which would gather young people from that community or country/region. Such a session would focus on climate change adaptation, which the guiding questions and other information will be provided by CCT.

These On-ground consultations seek to engage youths around the world on the topic of climate adaptation. These consultations will inform the final report on the modalities of youth-led climate action on a local level. Through these series of workshops, we hope to explore the knowledge level of young people on adaptation, their creative solutions to mitigate climate impacts including existing youth-led projects, and the hurdles and barriers to youth climate action.
