The Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) and World Bank Development Marketplace for innovation on GBV prevention (in Memory of Hannah Graham)
The Sexual Violence Research Initiative and the World Bank Group have jointly created the SVRI and World Bank Development Marketplace for Innovation on GBV Prevention. We are seeking proposals, 12 months in length of up to $US150,000, on strengthening or scaling up of innovative and promising GBV prevention strategies and intervention based research that will contribute to the expansion of the evidence base for promising prevention interventions of gender based violence in low and middle income countries. The SVRI is hosted by the South African Medical Research Council.
Applications for support under this grant should be affiliated with a recognized, legally constituted research institution or non‐government organization with existing research or programming capacity.
A maximum of two proposals will be considered for funding per applicant. Only one grant through this mechanism may be held by an applicant until the project has been completed. Grant applications that are made in partnership between non‐government or research institutions and a private sector entity are not excluded, but the grant can only fund the research or non‐government institution itself. Private sector companies are encouraged to contribute to the research and / or intervention through their own resources. Grants that are proposing work on behalf of UN Agencies will not be considered.
All organisations based in low and middle income countries (as classified by the World Bank), and organisations not based in low and middle income countries but working in such countries are eligible to apply.
