Funding brief: P4G is seeking to fund and support public-private partnerships with innovative projects in developing countries. These projects should be aimed at bettering the social, environmental and economic status of the communities (local to global) in which they work. Partnerships can apply for start-up funding of up to USD 100,000 or scale-up funding of up to USD 1 million for projects in five Sustainable Development Goal areas: food and agriculture; water; energy; cities and the circular economy.
P4G offers financial support and targeted assistance to select public-private partnerships that are advancing innovative strategies to achieve the following five UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
● SDG 2 Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture
● SDG 6 Water and Sanitation
● SDG 7 Clean Energy
● SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities
● SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production (circular economy)
P4G will provide funding only to partnerships in the start-up and scale-up phases of development and growth.
● Start-up: Promising, early-stage partnerships that need support to consolidate the partnership or test the feasibility of innovative approaches.
● Scale-up: Partnerships that are already engaged in promising, business-driven green growth innovations and need support to scale up and accelerate their impact.
Partnerships in the start-up phase may apply for up to USD 100,000. P4G funding should represent a maximum of 75 percent of the partnership’s budget. Partnerships in the scale-up phase may apply for up to USD 1 million, with P4G funding a maximum of 50 percent of the partnership’s budget. P4G funding is for a period of one to two years (12 – 24 months), depending on the needs of the partnership.
P4G has begun to identify Learning Communities – clusters of P4G Partnerships working in the same thematic area who can share knowledge with one another and collaborate towards broader goals. Learning Communities in 2019 include:
● New Plastics Markets
● Food Loss and Waste
● Sustainable Infrastructure
● Innovative Financing & Business Models Enabled by Technology
● Zero Emission Transportation
● Renewable Energy Finance
P4G will give preference to applications aligned with these six identified Communities of Learning, and potentially with other existing P4G partnerships, as new learning communities may emerge.

Eligibility: The Eligibility Checklist provides a list of the basic qualifications required to be eligible to become a P4G Partnership. Review the list to ensure that your partnership fits within P4G’s requirements. The link to the online application form will become available after you have completed the eligibility questions on the Checklist page.
Primary SDG Focus: Partnership activities must focus on one or more of P4G’s five target SDGs: Zero Hunger (2); Clean Water and Sanitation (6); Affordable and Clean Energy (7); Sustainable Cities and Communities (11); Responsible Consumption and Production (12). For more information about these SDGs, or to see the complete list of SDGs, go to https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/. 2. Start-up or Scale-up:
Partners: The partnership must include at least one commercial partner (a business or group of businesses) and at least one non-commercial partner (non-governmental organizations, civil society, business member organizations, associations, trade unions, or others that operate on a non-profit basis). The administrative partner (the contractual recipient of P4G funds) must be a legally registered non-commercial entity. The commercial partners must be committed to responsible business conduct by integrating human rights, labor rights, environmental concerns, and anti-corruption concerns into their operations and core strategies. The partnership must be able to secure support from a relevant government entity, though the government entity does not necessarily need to be a formal partner in the partnership.
Additionality: The partnership’s work must be “additional” to what is already happening or what would naturally happen in the marketplace. To be eligible for P4G funding, partnerships must not be primarily focused on traditional commercial business development (i.e. expansion of a core business offering), or traditional international development (i.e. programming that bilateral and multilateral funders have traditionally covered).
Market Potential: The partnership must be designed to overcome financial, institutional, operational, or other critical barriers to meeting the SDGs with an innovative, scalable, and commercially viable solution.

Partnerships not active in any partner country must request an exception according to the instructions below.* See list of ODA-eligible countries at http://www.oecd.org/dac/financing-sustainabledevelopment/development-finance-standards/daclist.htm.
