New DFID Fund to Support Collective Action Initiatives

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Business Integrity Initiative Challenge Fund in a partnership between the UK Department for International Development (DFID) Business Integrity Initiative and IMC Worldwide.

Monday 02 September 2019, Nick Moore

This £250,000 fund will support business-focused Collective Action Initiatives (CAIs) which aim to reduce corruption or promote human rights to improve the investment climate in emerging markets and developing countries. In particular the fund will support CAIs that aim to ensure that:

  1. More businesses have the capacity to act with integrity
  2. More businesses engage with governments on integrity issues
  3. More businesses view acting with integrity as a commercial advantage

The call for proposals is expected to launch in September 2019, with projects commencing in November 2019. The fund will support up to four projects ranging from £50,000 to £100,000 with a project duration from 6 to 12 months.

Applying for the fund

The call for proposals is now open and the deadline for proposals is 18th October 2019.

The application documents, including further information about eligibility, can be found here.

To register interest, or if you have any further queries, please contact the Fund Management Team at BIIChallengeFund@IMCWorldwide.com.
