2020 PeaceNexus International Partners Organisational Development Call for Proposals
Deadline: July 28, 2020.
PeaceNexus is looking to complement its current porfolio of international OD partners. They invite applications from international organisations that have peacebuilding as their primary mandate and are active or present through partners/members in at least 5 countries. Their OD support will address their internal challenges, with the aim of strengthening their ability to support local peacebuilding actors, including women and youth-led groups.
PeaceNexus supports global leaders and organisations that have a strong peacebuilding impact in fragile states. We currently provide organisational development support to nine international partners, including two multilateral agencies that have a peace and security mandate.
Applicants need to fill all the following eligibility criteria:
- Be a civil society organisation or a network or a foundation;
- And have building peace and social cohesion at the core of their mission or mandate;
- And have a presence (directly or through partners/members) in at least 5 countries, preferably including our focus regions
- And be directly responsible for the preparation of the application and management of the process if selected (not acting as intermediary), and
- Confirm that their activities will not violate the USA PATRIOT Act (18 U. S. C. §2339B)
