Call for Proposals

The Youth for Water and Climate  Platform is looking for youth-led projects (that is projects developed by persons between the ages of 18 -35 years of age). As a result, this call for proposal would seek to identify, encourage and support youth engagement related to water management and climate change adaptation with support from the International Secretariat for Water and contributions of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.  Therefore, youth from around the world would be able to access financial support, in order to implement innovative and creative water and climate projects.


The period for accepting proposals is open from 18 September to 16 October 2018, therefore all project submissions received during that period will be admissible. Interested persons can visit the official website for project submission guidelines or contact the Youth for Water and Climate (YWC) Secretariat at

Results would be announced during the period 9 November to 2 December 2018 and winners would be showcased during the COP24 (the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)). COP24 will take place in December, in Poland.
