Transforming agriculture to empower women and deliver food, nutrition and income security

Cross-Regional Grants Competition

Do you have a project idea that can bring positive change at the community–level, not only in your own country, but in a different region as well? Can your project be implemented in a cross-regional partnership?

The OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) invite non-profit organizations from Europe and Central Asia and the Middle East and North Africa region to submit their project ideas and jointly develop, test, or share innovative and scalable solutions to development challenges from the two regions.

The two thematic priorities of this competition are:

1) Affordable energy and water solutions: technological solutions that combat the lack of access to energy or water;

2) Economic governance and employment: more inclusive labor markets and increased capacity of people to access it.

The grants of minimum US$ 20,000 to maximum US$ 55,000 will support projects over a 12-month period. Eligible applicants must submit the Expression of Interest by 30 March 2015. Learn more about the selection criteria and application process
