Outcomes and project planning
You can find out more about developing outcomes through our video guide.
Estimating carbon savings
To help you estimate the carbon emissions (CO2e) savings of your CCF project we have produced a new tool. The tool has sections to help you estimate CO2e savings for a number of activities for each project theme, so that you can establish what initiatives will be likely make the the largest savings. The tool will be emailed to you by your Development Officer with the CCF application form and guidance notes.
You can see an example of how the tool has been used to estimate carbon savings for a food project in our Example Project Plan for Food Projects.
Eligible items and activities
You'll need to ensure that items and activities you include in your project are eligible for CCF funding. You should check the list of these items specifically for food projects, but you also the eligibility of items and activities for other themes your project will cover.
Partners and third party resources
Your Development Officer will outline key organisations you should work with to plan and deliver your project. They will also outline third party resources that will prove helpful. You can see a summary of partners and third party support for food projects, but you should also consult other themes your project will cover.
Case studies and video guide
If you are looking for inspiration, might also find it useful to consult case studies of previously funded CCF food projects and check our video guide on community growing projects.
This guide provides advice and support for groups planning a Climate Challenge Fund community growing project, but should be useful for all.
