Pacific-American Climate Fund
Request for Applications Released; Funding Support Available for Pacific Island Organizations
The Pacific-American Climate Fund (PACAM) is a five-year USAID project that provides grants to civil society organizations throughout the Pacific Rim in support of climate change adaptation measures.
PGRD, in collaboration with URS Corporation, manages the grants facility on behalf of USAID to strengthen the resiliency of vulnerable communities in Pacific island countries to adapt to the negative impacts of climate change. In addition, PGRD provides managerial and financial capacity-building assistance to grantees to improve the organizational capacity of civil society partners. PGRD also captures and disseminates best practices and lessons learned at the community level to all stakeholders, including neighboring communities, other donors, and host country governments.
