DRL seeks a regional program that promotes sound, just, and responsive governance through efforts to counter corruption while encouraging strong and active civil society, democratic institutions responsive and accountable to citizens, commitment to fundamental freedoms and universal values, and public sector accountability and transparency. A competitive regional program will engage with a broad range of civil society actors and activists to identify specific human rights and governance gaps across Southeast Asia and the Pacific and design initiatives to address those needs.

Proposed regional programs should focus on Southeast Asia and the Pacific region. Projects should have a regional approach or focus on at least three countries in the Southeast Asia and Pacific region. DRL encourages the inclusion of activists from other countries in East Asia or other regions around the world where their participation would strengthen advancement of transparent and accountable governance, human rights, and anti-corruption in Southeast Asia and the Pacific. DRL strongly favors applicants with a proven ability to implement a regional program, and seeks an approach that includes opportunities for sub-grants and other methods of support to address needs identified by civil society stakeholders and activists.

For all programs, projects should aim to have impact that leads to reforms and should have the potential for sustainability beyond DRL resources. DRL’s preference is to avoid duplicating past efforts by supporting new and creative approaches. This does not exclude from consideration projects that improve upon or expand existing successful projects in a new and complementary way. Programs should seek to include groups that can bring perspectives based on their religion, gender, disability, race, ethnicity, and/or sexual orientation and gender identity. Programs should demand-driven and locally led to the extent possible. DRL also requires all of its programming to be non-discriminatory and expects implementers to include strategies for integration of individuals/organizations regardless of religion, gender, disability, race, ethnicity, and/or sexual orientation and gender identity.
