Grantmakers and investors are putting out the call for urban climate adaptation ideas. Apply by March 15 for $250,000 in grants from Climate Ventures 2.0 for 10 innovations that combat water scarcity, stormwater runoff and agriculture vulnerabilities. Some of the startups will pilot their projects through the Rockefeller Foundation’s network of “100 Resilient Cities.” Rockefeller is backing another competition specifically for San Francisco in April. Bay Area: Resilient by Design will distribute $4.6 million in grants to support 10 ideas that address the threat of rising sea levels, storms, flooding and earthquakes.
