Funding name: The Fonds SUEZ initiatives
Funding brief: The Fonds SUEZ initiatives supports concrete actions to sustainably develop access to essential services (water, sanitation and waste) for underprivileged populations in developing countries, in addition to supporting the integration of the most vulnerable populations in France through education and employment. Their actions contribute to the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The Fonds SUEZ initiatives (the Fund) support activities in the following areas:
● Improving access to essential services for underprivileged people in developing countries: drinking water, sanitation, waste management.
● Social and Professional Inclusion of people facing hardship in France, through employment and training.
The Fonds SUEZ initiative has several priorities:
● Supporting and providing assistance to development projects through financial and technical partnerships established with international solidarity support organizations and non-profit making specialist institutions as well as companies involved in the social and solidarity economy.
● Supporting emergency humanitarian operations in the field of access to essential services.
● Supporting and assisting social and professional inclusion projects, promoting employment and training. The Fund is thereby committed in the long term, contributing to the social and economic stimulation of local areas.
● Boosting the capacities of local players and disseminating know-how by supporting the professionalization of services, the implementation of specific training courses, the networking of those involved. .
● Encouraging innovation and applied research that can be adapted to the realities of developing countries by supporting research and development programmes and organizing a Award to reward and promote proven innovative projects.
● For the access to essential services projects: the Fund supports projects implemented in developing countries. It does not support undertake work in what are called developed countries within the scope considered.
● The Fund wishes to focus its activity on urban and peri-urban problems: projects in these areas will therefore be given priority consideration. Rural projects will not, however, be ruled out provided they result in a sustainable structure for managing the services provided.
● For the “social inclusion” projects: the Fund focuses on projects in France.
