The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) Unit of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) invites Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to submit proposals to reinforce the Independent Redress Mechanism’s (IRM) presence at the grassroots level and raise awareness about its mission, and values in Latin America and Africa in order to assist with communications and outreach with key audiences.

The Independent Redress Mechanism plans to collaborate with three (3) civil society organisations (CSOs) in 2023 to assist with communications and outreach with key audiences, including:

  • Regional CSOs working on climate change, human rights and/or access to justice.
  • Local formal and non-formal organisations close to GCF project sites, including, neighbourhood associations, community networks, business associations, formal and informal education centres, community centres, etc.
  • Local activists and advocates in climate change, human rights or similar, working close to project sites.
  • Neighbours and people (including indigenous people) working or living close to project sites.
  • Local media and journalists from radio, TV, print outlets, etc.

CSOs are encouraged to come up with their own set of activities that are the most relevant to reach key audiences in their country/region. CSOs are expected to target audiences in their own country and are encouraged to extend outreach activities to neighbouring countries.

Examples of outreach activities could include:

  • Creation of paid ads on social media
  • Organisation of virtual or in-person workshops/webinars
  • Distribution of printed or digital materials (brochures, pamphlets, newsletters, etc.)
  • Creation of public billboards or other advertisements

CSOs must ensure that any messaging related to this contract aligns with the IRM’s values, mission, and vision, as well as its branding and messaging
