 Flagship Partner Grant 2021

The Coca-Cola Australia Foundation is inviting environmental organisations to apply for a new Flagship Partner grant focused on tackling the issue of water security in Australia.

Submissions will be open from 16 August to 3 September with the successful organisation receiving up to $600,000 over a three-year period (maximum of $200,000 per annum).

Funding is available to organisations that are working to address the issue of water security in Australia and developing solutions for the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all (aligned to UN SDG 6-'Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all').  As climate change further amplifies these water challenges, projects addressing climate change mitigation and adaption, with a focus on enabling communities to adapt to water-related climate change impacts, will also be considered (aligned to UN SDG 13-'Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts').

Grant Criteria

Programs need to tackle the issue of water security in Australia and address one or more of the following UN SDG targets (the Targets)

  • Target 6.1 achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all
  • Target 6.3: improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse,
  • Target 6.4: substantially increase water-use efficiency across all sectors and ensure sustainable withdrawals and supply of freshwater to address water scarcity and substantially reduce the number of people suffering from water scarcity,
  • Target 6.6: Protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including mountains, forests, wetlands, rivers, aquifers and lakes
  • Target 6.b: Support and strengthen the participation of local communities in improving water and sanitation management; and
