Deadline: 17 December 2018
Is your organisation a company, public institution, NGO or knowledge institution? And do you want to cooperate in a public-private partnership in order to contribute to sustainable development goals (SDGs) in developing countries? If yes, then apply for SDGP to get support for your project.
With the SDG Partnership Facility (SDGP), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in cooperation with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) as the executor, aims to contribute to the achievement of various sustainable development goals (SDGs) in developing countries:
- SDG 2 (ending hunger)
- SDG 8 (decent jobs and economic growth)
- SDG 17 (partnerships for the goals)
These are key goals which cannot be solved by one party. That is why the SDGP works with partnerships between government, businesses, NGOs and/or knowledge centres. Combining the expertise of these parties is essential for finding innovative solutions to complex challenges. Partnerships are capable of aligning interests and bridging differences so that major steps can be taken towards attaining the SDGs.
