Call for Proposals: Global Acceleration Instrument on Women, Peace & Security and Humanitarian Action in Jordan

Deadline: 21 December 2016

United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women is accepting proposals from eligible organisations for a program entitled “Global Acceleration Instrument (GAI) on Women, Peace & Security and Humanitarian Action” with an aim to achieve peaceful and gender equal societies.

Program Functions

The GAI has three main functions:

  • First, it breaks silos between humanitarian, peace, security, and development finance by investing in enhancing women’s engagement, leadership, and empowerment across all phases of crisis, peace and security, and development.
  • Second, it addresses structural funding gaps for women’s participation in key phases of crisis, peace and security, and development by improving the timeliness, predictability and flexibility of international assistance. Notably, it will ensure a timely investment in conflict prevention after receipt of early warning signals from women, and will accelerate the dispersal of development assistance after successful peace negotiations.
  • Third, it recognizes that peace cannot be created nor sustained without investment in both the government and civil society organizations.

Funding Information

Project proposals should be for no less than 100,000 USD and no more than 200,000 USD.

Program Outcomes

  • Outcome 1: An enabling environment for the implementation of WPS commitment
  • Outcome 2: Women’s meaningful participation in conflict prevention
  • Outcome 3: Humanitarian/crisis response planning, frameworks and programming which is informed by gender analysis and needs assessments
  • Outcome 4: Conflict resolution
  • Outcome 5: Protection
