CARE Denmark calls for the eligible participants to apply for the innovation challenge(Surviving Climate Change and Opposing Power Abuse )
Innovation Challenge themes
CARE to innovate search for innovations on two major themes for CDK programming, and all challenges should fall within one or both of these themes:
1. Opposing Power Abuse: Poor people are often left voiceless when faced with power abuse from public authorities, the private sector and other duty-bearers. They seldom have access to the types of data that will allow them to challenge decisions and hold power holders to account. Furthermore, strengthening trust is key in fostering sustainable development and democratic societies. Right-holders are in need of data, systems, processes and technologies that will counterweigh abuse of power. This challenge is intended to deliver new answers to SDG 16 on peace, justice and string institutions.
2. Surviving Climate Change: Extreme weather (droughts, floods, etc.), migration and suffering are also caused by changing climates. The world’s poor are in need of innovations that allow them to become resilient to and survive climate change by giving them better tools to manage – adapt and mitigate climate shocks. Innovations under this challenge will offer new solutions to SDG number 13 on climate action.
