The Global Resilience Partnership (GRP) and USAID have joined forces with KPMG to launch an innovation challenge designed to identify and nurture novel examples of resilience in Africa and Asia.

About the Challenge

Applications are invited from organisations working on innovative solutions to build resilience at the intersection between three strategic areas:

- Peace and stability

- Food and water security

- Disaster resilience

Innovations must be designed for the Horn of Africa, the Sahel, South Asia or Southeast Asia.

The potential scope of the innovations may be broad and can include products, services, technologies, methodologies, partnerships, or approaches.

The challenge is open to organisations across public, private, local civil society, international NGOs, and academia as well applications from individual entities or consortia. Both experienced implementers as well as start-ups are eligible to apply.

Challenge winners will receive mentorship support for a period of three months, technical advice, and media coverage through GRP’s communication team. They will also participate in an innovation workshop designed to “bring ideas to life and scale”, a Leadership Academy course facilitated by subject matter experts, and have the opportunity to network with potential funders.

The application window is now open and closes on 5th March 2019. To sign up for the innovation challenge, click here to download the application form and guidance notes for submissions.
