United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF): Inviting applications for ‘grant’ to support two-year projects that empower civil society, promote human rights, and encourage the participation of all groups in democratic processes.

Funding brief: The United Nations Democracy Fund invites civil society organizations to apply for project funding. Project proposals may be submitted on-line in English or French, the two working languages of the UN, which will open from mid-November, 2019 until mid-December, 2019 at: https://www.un.org/democracyfund/.

UNDEF supports two-year projects that empower civil society, promote human rights, and encourage the participation of all groups in democratic processes. The large majority of UNDEF funds go to local civil society organizations. In this way, UNDEF plays a distinct role in complementing the UN’s other work — the work with Governments — to strengthen democratic governance around the world. This is the Thirteenth Round to be launched by UNDEF, which provides grants of up to US$300,000 per project. Since 2006, UNDEF has supported over 780 projects in over 120 countries at a total amount of almost US$190 million. Proposals are subject to a highly rigorous selection process, with fewer than two per cent of proposals chosen for funding.

UNDEF invites project proposals covering one or more of eight thematic areas:
Gender equality
Community activism
Rule of law and human rights
Youth engagement
Strengthening civil society interaction with Government
Media and freedom of information
Tools for knowledge
Electoral processes

Criteria: In UNDEF’s initial assessment of proposals, each project proposal is scored against 10 criteria. Since less than two per cent of proposals make it to the short-list, you need to score well on all the criteria to advance to the next stage. Make sure you demonstrate that your proposal satisfies each one:
The project promotes the objectives of UNDEF
The project draws on the United Nations’ comparative advantage
The project will have a significant impact
The project will encourage inclusion of marginalized and vulnerable groups
The project will enhance gender equality
The project has strong prospects for successful implementation
The applicant organization has a strong track record
The project is technically sound in conception and presentation
The project represents good value for money
The project has strong prospects of sustainability beyond the project duration.
