SPIDER Call for Proposals: Inviting Local NGOs for ICT for Transparency and Accountability Projects in Myanmar

Deadline: 31 August 2017

The Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (SPIDER) has announced a call for proposals for “ICT for Transparency and Accountability projects in Myanmar”.

Myanmar is undergoing unprecedented change and there are many opportunities to contribute to development. Transparency is availability on information about commitments, decisions and the situation at large and developing a country’s transparency makes for informed and inclusive processes. SPIDER welcomes project proposals that entail:

  • Collecting and sharing open data sets (for a subject area where there is little or no open data available and where there are identified stakeholders who will use this data)
  • Using open data for awareness raising and advocacy relying on available data shared through platforms such as for example Open Development Myanmar
  • Using available open data to engage with duty bearers (government, private sector and others)

Grant Information

  • Maximum funds: 500 000 SEK
  • Duration of projects: 1 year

Eligibility Criteria

  • This call for proposals invites projects that cover one or several steps of this chain. That is for example using available open data for awareness raising and opening discussions with duty bearers (public and private sector) to do something about the voiced concerns.
  • Local NGOs, CSOs, FBOs are eligible to apply.

How to Apply

Interested applicants must download the Concept note template via given website.

Eligible Country: Myanmar
