Canada Fund for Local Initiatives 2022 – Ethiopia, Djibouti, African Union

The Embassy of Canada in Ethiopia is pleased to launch its annual call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI). Proposals can be submitted for projects in Ethiopia or in Djibouti, or for projects that relate to the African Union and/or have a continental perspective.

About Canada Fund for Local Initiatives

The CFLI is a program designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the relevant Canadian embassy or high commission. The CFLI also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada and recipient countries and their civil societies, by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavors.
