Call for Proposals: 2018 Collaborative Data Innovations for Sustainable Development in Low & Lower-Middle-Income Countries

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 15 August 2018

The World Bank’s Development Data Group (DECDG), in collaboration with the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD) is seeking proposals for a program entitled “Collaborative Data Innovations for Sustainable Development” to encourage collaboration, experimentation, learning and capacity development in the field of sustainable development data.

The collaborations should take place in low-income countries and lower-middle-income countries, and be directed towards sustainable development generally, and linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular.

Themes

  • Scaling local data for impact: The program is looking for innovations, which have an established proof of concept, and will provide more detailed, disaggregated, in-depth information to benefit local decision-making that can be replicated in other regions of the same country, or in a similar setting in a different country.
  • Fostering synergies between the communities of non-official data and official statistics: The program is looking for collaborations which take advantage of the relative strengths and responsibilities of official (i.e., governmental) and non-official (e.g., private sector, civil society, social enterprises and academia) actors in the data ecosystem, and which can build lasting links between them.

Grant Information

  • The amount of funding available for each project will range from $25,000 to $250,000.
  • Funding will commence after March 1, 2019.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Any consortium, with at least two organizations, may apply.
  • Consortium members may include social enterprises, for-profit companies, non-profit organizations, government agencies, international organizations, academic organizations, networks and partnerships.
  • The Program prioritizes the funding of work in low- and lower-middle-income countries.
  • The Program especially interested in proposals that bring different types of organizations together and in seeing these organizations contributing and integrating their data.
  • To better understand how the proposed project supports action and decision making, a specific end-user of the project’s outputs (e.g., a government agency or organization who needs and can act on the outputs) must be identified and included as part of the team applying.
  • However, the lead organization may not be a government organization (including United Nations agencies) as project awards will be in the form of vendor contracts with the World Bank and subject to World Bank’s vendor contract terms.

How to Apply

Applicants must submit the following proposal elements, all in English, via online application system through the given website.

  • A set of narrative responses that addresses the criteria above
