Funding Opportunity: USAID – Climate Action Partnership for Education

This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest and collaborate in the research, development, piloting, testing and scaling of innovative and cost-effective solutions that will advance climate action in and through education with a focus on girls’ education.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) invites organizations, companies, foundations, community-based enterprises and other public and private entities, academic and research institutions, partner country government agencies, and investors to propose novel or creative approaches that:

  1. demonstrate how international education policy and programming can directly, intentionally, and effectively advance climate action; and
  2. reduce the impact of climate-related barriers on girls’ education.


In accordance with the definition of applied research in FAR 35.001, apply the fuller understanding of problems at the nexus of education, girls’ education and climate change gained through this research to develop creative solutions to pilot and understand under CAPE.

Solutions will integrate evidence for advancing climate action, education outcomes, and gender equality, to stimulate broader cross-sectoral collaboration, funding and integrated implementation.

The applied research solutions will generate theoretical as well as practical evidence of how local stakeholders, international and regional funders and researchers can come together at the nexus of education, gender and climate to address the above problems, going forward.

Illustrative examples of solutions sought:

  • Integrate appropriate climate and environment themes in education curriculum
  • Support educators to deliver education instruction with climate and environment themes
  • Support education planners and leaders to plan for climate resilience and safe and/or green infrastructure
  • Engage youth leaders to advocate for improved environmental practices and attitudes in their communities
  • Identify ways for broader stakeholder engagement at the nexus of education, climate and gender across several divides: public and private actors, state and non-state stakeholders and global, regional and local levels

Closing date: Friday, April 28, 2023 at 5:00 PM EDT

Total Program Funding: $5,000,000
