 Description

 

GFDRR South-South Cooperation Program facilitates collaboration among disaster prone low- and middle-income countries in mainstreaming disaster risk reduction and recovery into their development programming. It provides grant financing to innovative partnership proposals to facilitate the cross regional and cross country collaboration in disaster risk management based on mutual interest and benefit of partnering entities. 

 

The new Call for Proposals was announced in May, 2009. A side event titled “South South Cooperation: Making It a Winning Combination” will be organized during the Global Platform on Disaster Reduction and Recovery in Geneva.

 

It will target the interested partnerships to help them develop fundable partnership proposals. During the meeting the potential partnerships will have the opportunity to meet the team from GFDRR South-South Program to discuss their partnership initiatives and seek advice on both conceptual and technical issues related to their applications.

 

 Objective 

 

The workshop aims at providing an opportunity and platform for partnering members of the potential partnerships to work jointly on the design and structure of their collaboration, develop the specifics of the partnership arrangements, explore the mutual benefits and agree on individual commitments.

 

Staff from WB, UN agencies and recipients of previously approved partnership grants will assist the partnerships with technical advice and facilitation to sharpen the focus of their proposals, and to design activities and work program that allow to realize the full potential of their partnerships.
