Scottish Government Climate Justice Innovation Fund

The Climate Justice Innovation Fund (CJIF) is open to any Scottish-based organisation, working in partnership with in-country partner(s), to support the delivery of climate justice-related projects which demonstrate innovation in the field.  CJIF projects should be delivered in one or more of the Scottish Government’s International Development sub-Saharan priority countries (Malawi, Zambia or Rwanda), with awards of up to £100,000 for project grants over a maximum three year period.  Projects must also support the beneficiary country’s own development priorities.

The Scottish Government particularly welcomes applications:

  • from currently under-represented groups such as diaspora representatives;
  • from small organisations with a turnover of £150k or less
  • from Scottish organisations collaborating to deliver a project


Please refer to the information and criteria document for more information.

The closing date for applications is 7th August 2017, with successful projects to commence in November 2017.

An information session will be held in Edinburgh on Thursday 6th July and you can register your interest in attending by emailing
