UN Women Call for Proposals: United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women 2013

The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) has announced the 2013 Call for Proposals for NGOs to apply for the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women. It is a leading global grant-making mechanism exclusively dedicated to addressing violence against women and girls in all its forms. It supports effective initiatives that demonstrate that violence against women and girls can be systematically addressed, reduced and, with persistence, eliminated.

The UN Trust Fund works in partnership with NGOs, governments and UN country teams to prevent violence against women and girls; expand the access of women and girl survivors of violence to services; and strengthen the implementation of laws, policies and action plans on violence against women and girls.

Programmes reaching  especially marginalized  and high‐risk populations  including the internally displaced, refugees, women living in  conflict, post‐conflict and transitional settings, and women  with  disabilities  will  receive  special  consideration.

Proposals should ideally reflect partnerships among civil society and government. Special attention will be paid to organizations with a demonstrated record of working with  local women’s organizations, especially grassroots women’s organizations and networks. Proposals from more than one organization or entity as co‐applicants must clearly indicate which organization will take lead responsibility for project management and contractual obligations.

For large civil society organizations, governments and UN Country Teams, budget requests should be within the range of a minimum of US$ 300,000 to a maximum of US$ 1 million total for duration of two to three years.

For  small  civil  society  organizations,  especially  grassroots  women’s  organizations  and  youth‐led organizations, budget requests for a minimum of US$ 50,000 will also be considered.

Applicants are expected to submit proposals online in the form of a brief Concept Note. Concept Notes can be submitted in the following languages only: English, French and Spanish.

The deadline for submission of the Concept Note is 22 January 2014, 11:59 pm New York Time (EST).

Linking an FTT to scaled up climate action


Where is the Finance (WTF) to fill the gap? Here’s one of many answers to that question, the Financial Transaction Tax (FTT).

In early 2013, 11 EU Member States agreed to introduce an FTT that could generate revenues of €37bn a year or more, depending on its scope. While the FTT is still in in the design phase, ECO wonders whether France,  Germany and the other nine European supporters could not only finalise discussions on the scope of the FTT (on which scale of revenue will depend) but make a bold move: by allocating a big portion of the revenues to climate finance. This is a marvellous plan, as it would allow the EU – perhaps in time for the Ban Ki-moon summit in late 2014 – to assign a substantial amount to the very empty Green Climate Fund.

It’s not a totally mad idea, It’s said France already is earmarking 10% of its FTT revenues to climate action. And we hear that Belgium supports the idea of  using part of the FTT revenues for development and climate action.

But what about the others, for instance Germany – where a new government is being formed even as the ministerial proceeds? One coalition partner had joined a grand campaign to allocate 33% of FTT revenues to climate action. Well, that was before the elections. Let’s see if they stay true to that promise.

Now it’s in the court of the EU-11 to bridge the gap with a bold FTT.
