ASEAN Programme Fund Financial Year 2015-16

The UK Government call for proposals.


The ASEAN Programme Fund welcome bids for projects working with the ASEAN Secretariat or in ASEAN member states for financial year 2015-2016.

The programme fund supports strengthening the rules-based international system in support of our values including human rights and our implementation of FCO Priority:

Safeguard Britain’s national security by countering terrorism and weapons proliferation, and working to reduce conflict.

Bids under the following areas are invited:

  • Regional integration

  • Conflict and security

  • Human Rights

  • Democracy and Governance

  • Counter-Terrorism

  • Key Foreign Policy

Bids should focus either on capacity-building for the ASEAN Secretariat, the ASEAN Chairmanship or benefit at least two ASEAN countries. We welcome applications for funding for projects on these topics from government, NGOs, civil society, universities and think tanks.

Priority will be given to proposals with a high impact and concrete outcomes at regional level. We do not support research-only projects. We accept applications for co-funding for larger projects.
