Conflict Pool: Call for proposals for Egypt
This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government
The Conflict Pool (CP) is opening a call for proposals for Egypt.
The Conflict Pool is opening a call for proposals for Egypt. We are looking for project ideas that can deliver the following objectives:
- Improving women’s rights.
- Reducing violence against women
We are particularly interested in projects that will have a broader impact than simply working with a small number of beneficiaries. This might be through working with local or national Government or public institutions or influencing policy formulation or private sector behaviour.
The project bids clearly need to demonstrate their contribution to the priorities. They will be assessed on what results they will achieve, how realistic the plans are and whether the results constitute good value for money against the proposed budget. Prospective partners will also need to demonstrate how they will measure the impact of their project. The approximate financial range is £50,000 to £500,000.
The (CP) discloses all its project partnerships to the Egyptian Government. The (CP) will fund international and local organisations that operate within the Egyptian legal framework.
How to apply
Duration of Projects
Proposed project interventions can be implemented during the current financial year (ending on 31 March 2015), or can be multi-year in nature (but not extending beyond 31 March 2016). Multi-year projects which demonstrate year-on-year progress are especially encouraged. Please note that funding beyond March 2015 is subject to approval each year.
(Please note that invitation to submit a full project proposal does not necessarily imply that project funding will be subsequently granted).
Conflict Pool: Background
Her Majesty’s Government established in 2001 the Conflict Prevention Pools (CPP) with the main aim of preventing and managing international conflict. There is now one single Conflict Pool (CP), run jointly by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the Department for International Development (DFID), and the Ministry of Defence (MOD).
The overall goal of the (CP) is to achieve a reduction in global and regional conflict and its impact through improved UK and international efforts to prevent, manage and resolve conflict, and to create the conditions required for effective state-building and economic development.
