UAE Invites Bids for Gulf Strategy Fund ’23-’25

The British Embassy is keen to receive applications for projects that support UK’s engagement and leadership on mitigation, adaptation and resilience at COP28. We are also interested in projects that champion the Net Zero transition, and protect nature and the environment in the context of the UAE. We are interested in projects that support behaviour change and civil society engagement in tackling climate change.

The British Embassy invites applications for projects in the range of £80, 000 to £150, 000 and these can be for up to two years (ending March 2025). Applications for smaller projects will also be considered on an individual basis.

Applications are open to organisations based anywhere in the world, however priority will be given to those with strong, existing links and/or footprint in the UAE and the UK.
