UK Aid Direct: A challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals.

MannionDaniels

Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), UK Aid Direct was established in 2014 as a successor to the Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF), which was created in 2010. UK Aid Direct is a challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals. The aim of UK Aid Direct is to fund small- and medium-sized national and international civil society organisations (CSOs) to reduce poverty and work towards achieving the Global Goals. Specifically, UK Aid Direct funding reaches the most marginalised and vulnerable populations, supporting the DFID agenda to ‘leave no one behind’. This agenda can be achieved through funding projects that encompass service delivery, economic empowerment, strengthening accountability or generating social change. As a flexible fund, UK Aid Direct is designed to be an adaptive and demand-led fund that responds to DFID priorities of:\n\n- Strengthening global peace, security and governance\n\n- Strengthening resilience and response to crisis\n\n- Promoting global prosperity\n\n- Tackling extreme poverty and helping the world’s most vulnerable\n\n- Delivering value for money

UK-INDIA Partnership on National Investment and Infrastructure Fund -Green Growth Equity Fund

UK Department for International Development

The NIIF sub-fund will use UK government finance to catalyse private sector investments from global UK investors, through the City of London to infrastructure projects in India. To help India address a key constraint to inclusive growth by boosting investment into infrastructure - which will lead to growth, job creation and poverty reduction in India. The fund is fully attributed to climate change mitigation - ie low carbon development, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The fund will primarily invest in sectors like Renewable Energy, Clean Transportation, Water Treatment, and Waste Mnagement. The success of this intervention will lead to follow on private investment that will have a transformational impact on India's economic development.

Climate Resilient Infrastructure Development Facility (CRIDF) Phase II

WYG International B.V.

During the programme period and expected accrued benefits beyond the programme period, CRIDF II will be expected to contribute substantially to the following benefits. 1) 2-3 million poor people better able to cope with the impacts of existing climate variability and climate change (especially floods and drought); 2) 100 water infrastructure projects designed, 25 of which are brought to ‘bankability’ within the programme lifetime (in a wider context of stagnant or slow project advancement); 3) £400 million of finance mobilised from the private sector (e.g. multinationals with a high dependency on water as an input to production) and the public sector (e.g. National Governments and Development Banks, UN agencies and international initiatives) to plan and construct water infrastructure for communities within SADC member states. CRIDF II is expected to use these three results areas as an entry point for capacity building and influencing policies/plans rather than concentrating on them as standalone areas.

Climate resilient infrastructure development facility, Phase II (CRIDF-2)

COWI

The Climate Resilient Infrastructure Development Facility (CRIDF), Phase I, was mandated to design, mobilize finance for, and build climate resilient, pro-poor and transboundary water projects. COWI supported the planning, design and capacity development across the SADC Region to support stronger regional cooperation within the 13 transboundary river basins and its population of about 95 million people. Water insecurity across these basins is high – with frequent droughts interspersed by flooding. Reliable access to water for drinking, sanitation, agriculture and industry is already limited, constraining human development and economic growth. Given projected scenarios for greater water demand (resulting from population growth and economic development) and more variable water supply (due to the impacts of climate change) riparian states are required to strengthen their cooperation over shared rivers to protect and achieve development gains. Within this context, CRIDF1 delivered, and CRIDF2 will continue to deliver, climate resilient water infrastructure interventions that include: › Water Infrastructure Projects Identification and development of infrastructure projects through the entire cycle from scoping, feasibility and detailed design, procurement through to implementation. CRIDF supports the in-country procurement, financing and supervi-sion systems for infrastructure projects that, once completed, would be owned and managed by national and local authorities, water/energy utilities and beneficiary associations. The projects are used as platforms to further engage stakeholders, introducing climate resilience and transboundary concepts into national and regional policies. Subse-quently the lessons and evidence from the projects are disseminated through stakeholder networks in an effort to replicate success, and mainstream climate resilience and pro-poor considerations into water management practices. Where feasible power supply is provided through renewable energy installations, such as solar; › Infrastructure financing arrangements In addition to funding CAPEX for projects from its own budgets, CRIDF mobilizes infrastructure finance interventions to complement the infrastructure preparation work. This work focuses on investigating and securing innovative finance arrangements and funding partners for the implementation of the infrastructure projects that CRIDF will have pre-pared. By doing so, CRIDF seeks to leverage the maximum available support to catalyse transformation in joint plan-ning and implementation of climate resilient infrastructure. › Technical assistance to stakeholders CRIDF provides extensive technical assistance to the relevant stakeholders, ranging from long-term advice to key insti-tutions, to a rapid advisory service to respond to ad hoc requests. Such technical assistance aims at influencing the comprehensive planning and management of water infrastructure projects in the shared river basin context; › Building cooperation The overarching objective of CRIDF’s strategic interventions is that projects should be transformational in terms of their impact on building climate resilience for the poor in southern Africa. CRIDF actively promote changing the ena-bling environment in which CRIDF and other climate resilient infrastructure projects are designed, managed, imple-mented and operated, with a key aim to build cooperation through regional climate resilient economic growth, thereby shifting the way decision makers think, plan, operate and maintain water infrastructure. › Strategic Communications CRIDF has a comprehensive communication strategy that aims at stakeholders are informed about the background and the results of CRIDF using different communication avenues. CRIDF has produced a broad range of communications materials to share their work to bring transformational change to Southern Africa through improved transboundary water resources management from written briefs, brochures, case studies video documentaries. CRIDF combines different types of written materials, website news stories, resource centre for downloads and communication cam-paigns for effective dissemination. › Monitoring and Learning Framework The CRIDF has a functioning monitoring and learning framework that serves a dual purpose; i) to provide sufficient accurate data to programme management for decision making purposes (programme monitoring) and ii) to monitor and scrutinise programme process and implementation to provide. The CRIDF monitoring and learning approach is based on the OECD DAC criteria of Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact and Sustainability. In addition, given the regional and facilitative nature of CRIDF the approach take into considerations the OECD DAC

Article 19 PPA 2011-2016

Article19

ARTICLE 19's PPA has four objectives designed to challenge threats to freedom of expression and increase the impact of highly innovative 'niche NGOs' delivering transparency initiatives. A19 will: 1 Defend Freedom of Expression (FoE) and transparency in a multi-polar world: contribute to halting democratic setbacks; re-enforce the regional and international policies for poverty alleviation through a focus on transparency and the free flow of information (MDG 8). 2 Enhance FoE and transparency in a networked world: harness the power of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and media to implement the MDGs by ensuring that FoE principles, including that of universal access, are fully integrated in legal regulations and policies. 3) Protect FoE and transparency against its aggressors: strengthen the role and effectiveness of institutions which are meant to safeguard accountability and ensure that State and Non-State Actors are held accountable for abusing FoE and transparency standards essential to the realisation of all MDGs. 4) Narrow the gaps between principles and practice to deliver real benefits for the poor: empower people living in poverty and their CSOs to access information they need to advocate for better services and tackle some of the causes and consequences of poverty (MDG 3, 5 and 7). To achieve these objectives, A19 will enable CSOs, CBOs, network and processes and strengthen their capacities to secure accountable institutions, through legal and policy support, skills transfer, trainings, and coalition building. We will work simultaneously at grassroots, national and international levels, to ensure that freedom of expression and information grows roots in institutions and society, and fulfils its potential as a mechanism for citizen empowerment and poverty alleviation. ;

Scoping a Strategic UK-Brazil Global Development Partnership

UK Department for International Development

This programme aims to increase the uptake of Brazilian best practice in order to enhance international development impact by scoping new ways to jointly address development challenges, including through improved international development policy, building on an existing strong partnership which can deliver long-term pro-poor dividends in Africa. To achieve this goal this project would involve a jointly funded mapping study of development interventions by UK and Brazil to identify areas where Brazilian development expertise could best add value to DFID programmes and vice versa, and establish a new modus operandi for the partnership. Supported by impact studies, international seminars, and workshops and training to embed and deliver the partnership with partners.
