The Water and Energy for Food (WE4F) Grand Challenge is proud to announce the launch of Open Call for Innovations (O-CFI) in the Middle East and North Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and Southern and Central Africa.

Around the world smallholder farmers feel the effects of climate change, economic instability, and inefficient food production methods. This is coupled with local challenges that affect the agricultural sector – ranging from a lack of access to financing and markets to water scarcity. WE4F’s O-CFIs will foster innovations that enhance food security, water security, renewable energy usage, and sustainable water usage in their respective regions. Individual O-CFI awards will receive support in the form of technical assistance, investment facilitation, enabling ecosystem support, and grants. The awarded innovators will match the grant amount by at least 100%.

All O-CFIs are now accepting applications on a rolling basis. Learn more about each regional O-CFI here: https://cleancooking.org/funding-opps/water-and-energy-for-food-we4f-grand-challenge-open-call-for-innovations/
