New Afghanistan Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) seeks project proposals to help reduce localised conflict, support civil society, and protect the rights of Afghans.
Deadline for applications has now past.
Following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan, a new Afghanistan CSSF programme is under development. The UK government seeks to help Afghans reduce localised conflict, support Afghan civil society, including the media, and protect the rights of all Afghans.
The UK government’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) supports and delivers activity to tackle instability and to prevent conflicts that threaten UK interests.
We are issuing this Call for Bids notice as part of our programme development process. We are particularly interested in project proposals that focus on some or all of the following:
We are prioritising a focused portfolio and would therefore welcome bids from multi-disciplinary consortiums that can support activities across a range of our objectives.
Given the context and to maximise impact, we encourage a medium-term (3 year) approach. Projects would be subject to annual break clauses.
We are looking to support projects between the range of 1,500,000 GBP to £9,000,000 GBP over 3 years. However, we will also accept smaller, shorter-term proposals, starting from £500,000 for one year, including from individual organisations that do not form part of a consortium.
Bids will be assessed against the following criteria:
Applicants should submit the following 2 documents (in English) to charlotte.neil@fcdo.gov.uk, philippa.giles@fcdo.gov.uk and lauriane.povey1@fcdo.gov.uk
You should include ‘Afghanistan CSSF programme’ in the subject field.
Call now closed.
