During the Mobile World Congress 2023 event in Barcelona, the GSMA, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) launched the GSMA Innovation Fund for Climate Resilience and Adaptation 2.0.
The objective of this Fund is to help accelerate the testing, adoption and scalability of digital innovations that enable the world’s most vulnerable populations to adapt to, anticipate and absorb the negative impacts of climate change. The Fund will also strive to support solutions that contribute to climate resilience through activities strengthening biodiversity.
We are looking for start-ups, SMEs and social enterprises from Africa, South and South-East Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America and Eastern Europe that leverage digital technology to deliver climate resilience and adaptation solutions to and with low-income and vulnerable populations (particularly women).
To find out more about this opportunity, read GSMA's launch blog here or their press release here.
