The program is now accepting demonstration applications for five of its six priority themes:
- Climate and disaster resilience
- Low-carbon transitions
- Transboundary climate-smart landscapes
- Digital technology for climate actions and environmental sustainability
- Financing low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure and technology
Please find the full descriptions of the priority themes in the full call for proposals below.
Demonstrations are one of the main activities of the CCESP in order to help enhance climate resilience, green growth, and environmental quality in the GMS. The program plans to have 27 demonstrations relating to the different themes (such as demonstrations on gender-responsive community resilience projects, circular economy, pollution control, and waste management, etc.).
Through these demonstrations, the CCESP plans to pilot climate action practices, innovative technologies, and financing instruments. These demonstrations could eventually be scaled up or lead to wider investments.
The first and second batches of proposals were collected in 2022. The current, final call for proposals was initiated to ensure a richer pool of ideas that closely aligns with the priorities of GMS countries and thematic areas.
