Grant for strengthening subregional cooperation and national capacities in seven southern African countries for the preservation of intangible cultural heritage (2014)
Project: Strengthening subregional cooperation and national capacities in seven southern African countries to implement the 2003 Convention for the preservation of intangible cultural heritage (PART I) Beneficiary: Unesco Amount: 250 000 USD Duration: 2014 This project aims to establish a subregional cooperation platform to help seven southern African countries in their efforts to protect the heritage living within their borders. This platform consolidates the results of previous projects funded by Flanders.
Partner: Belgian Red Cross - Flanders Duration: 2013-2014 Budget: 147.840 euro The Belgian Red Cross - Flanders intends to strengthen the first aid activities of 10 national committees in southern Africa (Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe) via the International Red Cross. In order to bring this to a successful end, however, the idea is to carry out a baseline study first. For this purpose, the needs, legislative frameworks, policy plans and ongoing activities of each of the different countries will be recorded.
Project: Grant to the African Climate Change Fund Beneficiary: African climate Change fund period: 2017-2018 Amount: 2.000.000 euro According a study by Climate Policy Initiative in 2013-2014, only 3% of global climate funding went to Sub Saharan Africa. This contrasts with the finding that Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the lowest contribution to climate change, but with the highest vulnerability to climate change impacts. It is known that these countries find it more difficult to raise climate finance.
