Global Security and Stability Grant

Offered by UK Aid

The world has seen substantial success on poverty reduction. However, 1.2 billion people remain in extreme poverty. There is a growing recognition that the problems facing the poorest most excluded people and the global challenges underlying those problems, are complex and interconnected. No single development actor has all the answers. Coalitions and collaboration bring new and creative ideas, innovation, better results and opportunities through pooled ideas, skills and resources. DFID wants to bring those qualities together in coalitions that address key development challenges in the following priority thematic areas:

Phase 1
promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights
disability inclusion
working towards global security and stability
building civil society effectiveness
Phase 2
building open societies
tackling child labour and modern slavery
addressing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender inclusion
supporting tolerance and freedom of religion or belief
The consortia will undertake action research, trialling new approaches and testing the viability of scaling up effective approaches to produce rigorous and influential evidence and learning. The specific results delivered by each consortium will in part be determined by the nature of the issues to be addressed in those particular policy and thematic areas. However, we envisage the consortia will produce rigorous and influential practical evidence, knowledge and learning. The rigorous evidence and learning produced by the consortia will be used to implement and scale up these innovative solutions to deliver real change to poor people’s lives in low and middle income countries.
