Donor Name:  Department for International Development (DFID)
Funding name: No specific fund name

Funding brief:  UK Aid Connect will support consortia to create innovative solutions to complex development challenges that deliver real change to poor people’s lives.

The world has seen substantial success on poverty reduction. However, 1.2 billion people remain in extreme poverty. There is a growing recognition that the problems facing the poorest most excluded people and the global challenges underlying those problems, are complex and interconnected. No single development actor has all the answers. Coalitions and collaboration bring new and creative ideas, innovation, better results and opportunities through pooled ideas, skills and resources. DFID wants to bring those qualities together in coalitions that address key development challenges in the following priority thematic areas:

Phase 1
● promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights
● disability inclusion
● working towards global security and stability
● building civil society effectiveness

Phase 2
● building open societies
● tackling child labour and modern slavery
● addressing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender inclusion
● supporting tolerance and freedom of religion or belief

Sector: Agriculture, Climate change, Disabilities, Education, Empowerment and accountability, Environment, Girls and women, Health, Livelihoods, Peace and access to justice, Private sector/business, Technology, and Water and sanitation

Deadline: DFID is inviting consortia to submit proposals that will address the key development challenges in the priority thematic areas listed below. In response to feedback, the deadline for the submission of proposals has been extended to:
● Phase 1: 11:59 pm on 15 September 2017
● Phase 2: 11:59 pm on 20 October 2017
