The adoption of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) in July 2015 marked an important milestone: The international community defined a global framework for financing sustainable development supporting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. A successful implementation of the Addis Agenda depends on governments taking ownership for developing innovative concepts and policy frameworks. A successful implementation also hinges on a meaningful involvement and engagement of stakeholders from the private sector and civil society.
EPF’s umbrella network, the “Emerging Market Sustainability Dialogues (EMSD)”, and the GIZ program “Financing for Sustainable Development” are jointly launching a Call for Proposals: Independent think tanks and research institutions are invited to submit joint research proposals by at least two institutions of which at least one should be from an emerging economy or a developing country. Proposals should aim at developing concrete policy options for implementing the Addis Agenda and demonstrate a coherent approach to involve other stakeholders in the process.
Proposals must address one of the following topics as outlined in detail in the Call for Proposals:
- Mobilisation of Private Capital
- Enhancing Innovation Capacities and Technology Transfer
- Stepping up Sustainable Infrastructure Development
Successful proposals will receive a grant of up to EUR 40,000. Findings and final recommendations will be presented at relevant national and international fora.
The application deadline is 31 July 2016.
The challenge is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by GIZ.
