The 4th Call for Proposals is now open until Friday, 29 January 2021, 23:59 CET.
Please download the mandatory Concept Note Template here, and submit your project concept to the ISF via firstname.lastname@example.org.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a holistic approach on disaster relief and preparedness seems more vital than ever in order to compensate (in-)direct effects on economic development and growth of ODA countries. Thus, the ISF especially welcomes project concepts targeting the sectors most vulnerable to effects of the pandemic, such as critical infrastructure, emergency relief and financial support of (M)SMEs.
The ISF will host two Q&A sessions in December 2020 and January 2021. Interested parties wishing to attend are invited to reach out to email@example.com in order to receive further information.
All documents relevant for the application process and further guiding documents are published here.
For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.

The ISF provides grant-based co-funding of up to 2.5m EUR only to Partnerships consisting of public and/ or private organisations

- develop new climate risk insurance products, especially for governments or
- scale-up already existing products, e.g. into other regions or to other groups

increase the resilience of poor and vulnerable people in developing countries to climate change
2) where at least one partner is
- representing the demand and needs of end-beneficiaries (e.g. national or regional government bodies, NGOs, local insurers)
- willing to act as a risk taker (e.g. reinsurance company)
- located in the target country
3) which provide an own contribution
- matching the grant funding (in-kind and/or as financial contribution, including funds from their own resources and co-financing2)
Further parties, e.g. other product implementing partners such as risk modelling agencies, insurers, brokers, can additionally be involved.
In case of applying, please bear in mind that the grant-based co-funding of up to 2.5m EUR does not include your own contribution.
Hence, the formula is as follows: ISF grant + own contribution = total project costs.
