Join us for this webinar on Tuesday, January 18 from 9:00-10:00 AM EST, where Convergence will provide an overview of our Design Funding program and an in-depth look at the Asia Natural Capital Design Funding Window, including insights on types of solutions supported, target geography, how to apply, eligibility and evaluation criteria, and much more. We will also be bringing together grantees from the Asia Natural Capital Window to discuss challenges and lessons learned from designing blended finance solutions focused on natural capital and conservation, and how Convergence’s funding has supported their work.
The Asia Natural Capital Window provides grants for the design and launch of blended finance solutions focused on natural capital in Asia and is currently open for applications. In addition to this window, Convergence runs two other Design Funding windows: the Indo Pacific Window and the Gender-Responsive Climate Finance Window, which are also open for applications.
