A call for medium-scale proposals by the IHE Delft Water and Development Programme attracted 93 proposals, which are now under review.
The programme in May launched a call for proposals with budgets up to 400,000 euros for a maximum period of three years. The call particularly sought interdisciplinary proposals led by partners.
After an eligibility check and initial screening, the most promising proposals will be sent for an external review. The programme committee will announce which projects have been selected for funding by the end of September.
The programme, now in its third phase, seeks to stimulate and catalyse transformations to socially inclusive and ecologically sustainable water management practices by strengthening low- and middle-income countries capacities. To achieve this goal, it finances projects that involve joint research, education, and knowledge sharing.
The Water and Development Partnership Programme 2022-2027 is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
