GRP Innovation Challenge: Surfacing Resilience Solutions for Food & Water Security, Peace & Stability, and Disaster Resilience

Deadline: 5 March 2019

The Global Resilience Partnership (GRP) and USAID have partnered with KPMG to launch an Innovation Challenge designed to identify and nurture novel examples of resilience.

GRP is a partnership of public and private organisations joining forces towards a resilient, sustainable and prosperous future for vulnerable people and places. GRP is founded on knowledge excellence, inclusive decision making and a commitment to finding new ways of dealing with intractable issues. Stability and assumptions of linear, incremental change are history. Our future will be defined by three drivers: increasing complexity, global inter-connectivity, and surprise.

Focus Areas

They are looking for applications from organisations working on innovative solutions to build resilience at the intersection between three strategic areas:

  • Peace & Stability
  • Food & Water Security
  • Disaster Resilience

Benefits

Challenge winners will receive mentorship support for a period of three months, technical advice, and media coverage through GRP’s communication team. They will also participate in an innovation workshop designed to “bring ideas to life and scale”, a Leadership Academy course facilitated by subject matter experts, and have the opportunity to network with potential funders.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Innovations must be designed for the Horn of Africa, the Sahel, South Asia or Southeast Asia.
  • The potential scope of the innovations may be broad and can include product, services, technologies, methodologies, partnerships, or approaches.
  • The challenge is open to organisations across public, private, local civil society, international NGOs, and academia as well applications from individual entities or consortia. Both experienced implementers as well as start-ups are eligible to apply.

Applicants can download the application form via given website.
