Call for Proposals for the Challenge Fund of the Czech-UNDP Partnership


Deadline: 6 May 2019

The Challenge fund: Czech solutions for SDGs (CFCS) is looking for innovative solutions that generate improvement and value, especially by introducing, new methods, ideas, or products.

The CFCS views innovation in its broadest sense. The proposed solutions need to be sustainable and have a potential for scale up.

The Challenge fund is a component of the Czech-UNDP Partnership for Sustainable Development Goals (hereafter CUP), a project financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and implemented by UNDP Istanbul Regional Hub in period 2018–2021 to address development challenges in three partner countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgiaand the Republic of Moldova.

The objective of the Challenge fund: Czech solutions for SDGs is to facilitate transfer of Czech know-how and innovative solutions that would address development challenges identified by UNDP Country Offices in the project countries and contribute to the achievement of SDGs.

Funding Information

The Czech-UNDP Partnership for SDGs will provide up to US$40,000 per project through the CFCS. The applicants are expected to provide in kind or financial co-funding of at least 20% of the total Project costs.

Typical items that can be covered from the Challenge Fund may include, but are not limited to:

  • Salaries of project staff.
  • Technology, design, business, development and other consultancy services.
  • Advisory inputs.
  • Small equipment and supplies.
  • Training and workshop expenses.
  • Other costs, including travel connected to the implementation of the project.

Duration of the Project

The project must be completed within 12 months of the grant award.

Eligible Applicants

Entities wishing to apply to the CFCS need to meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • The lead applicant must be an Entity registered in the Czech Republic. Potential participants include Czech private sector, NGOs, universities, state institutions or research centers.
  • The project must be implemented in one of the partner countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, or the Republic of Moldova.
  • All applicants must demonstrate their capacity to implement their proposed Project, and will need to demonstrate adequate financial, material, human and other non-financial resources to implement the proposed Project within the set timeframe.
  • The applicant may partner with other Entity/Entities eligible for CFCS support. The applicant is responsible for the project and must warrant that the permission of the other members has been obtained.
  • The funding request is for a specific, new and innovative project that addresses the set development challenge. The CFCS views innovation in its broadest sense including: i) a new approach, product, idea or service that has not been tested anywhere; ii) is new to the beneficiary country; iii) has not been applied to the sector in question in the beneficiary country; or iv) service or business model being introduced to a target group where it has not been tried before.
  • The proposed project must have a potential for financial, social and environmental sustainability and scale up.
  • All projects must be inclusive in nature and benefit the target beneficiaries and contribute to the achievement of SDGs, rather than solely benefitting the participating Entity.
  • The applicant must apply for an Award ranging between US$20,000 USD and US$40,000.
  • The applicants provide co-funding of at least 20% of the total cost of the project. Co-funding can be in-kind. Co-funding above the minimum threshold is preferred and will be taken into account during evaluation.
  • The projects must demonstrate that the activities funded by the CFCS will be additional to the Entity’s existing activities and that the projects would not go ahead without CFCS funding. The CFCS could also consider projects that if they would have gone ahead, it would be at a muchreduced pace or scale in the absence of the CFCS support.
