We are pleased to announce the launch of the first Malaysia-UK PACT Call for Proposals today. Through this call UK PACT will allocate funding to transformational projects that help tackle climate change. The submission deadline is 9 November 2020.
Malaysia-UK PACT welcomes expressions of interest to develop innovative projects in three sectors: green finance, climate action enabling environment and energy. We will be looking for evidence of how project proposals can contribute to both emissions reductions and economic recovery objectives in Malaysia.
Successful projects will be awarded grants within the range of £100,000 up to a maximum of £375,000. With an estimated start date of April 2021, all projects will deliver capacity-building support in the priority sectors.
Welcoming the launch of Malaysia-UK PACT, British High Commissioner to Malaysia Charles Hay said:
“As host of the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow next year, we want to strengthen our collaboration with Malaysia on climate action. This is part of the UK’s broader ambition to build momentum across the world to tackle the global challenges posed by climate change”.
