NOTE: The deadline for concepts has been extended from April 25th to May 9th, 2017.
The following opportunity is also available in French (Francais).
This call for proposals is based on the unexpressed potential of increasing access to sustainable energy (SE) by fostering women's involvement, recognizing past and current efforts at redressing gender imbalances women are facing with regard to access to resources, including energy. It will contribute to the EU Gender Action Plan, SDG 5 (Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls) and SDG 7 (Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all) as well as SE4ALL objectives.
The global objective of this call for proposals is to promote women's entrepreneurship and economic empowerment in the sustainable energy sector/value chain. This should contribute to gender equality, to the eradication of poverty and to job creation, improving women’s lives and status.
The scope of the action is focusing on the sustainable energy sector, integrating financial services, skills improvement and soft measures for women empowerment.
The specific objectives of this call for proposals are:
The overall indicative amount made available under this call for proposals is EUR 20 000 000.

Since 2010, PRM has allocated specific funding to complement ongoing efforts through our regional GBV responses and Safe from the Start initiative, which supports GBV accountability and institutionalization across agencies. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is intended for research institutions, IOs, and NGOs that contribute to innovation and global learning in the field. Past support has led to the development of new evidence-based programming, guidelines and tools, as well as capacity building initiatives that contribute to quality programming and sustainability. (For more information about the programs supported through PRM’s GBV innovation fund in 2016, see: http://www.state.gov/j/prm/releases/factsheets/2014/219805.htm )
This announcement is for submissions that advance GBV programming and practice at the field level, with a particular focus on initiatives and efforts that improve quality and accessibility of services for women, girls, and survivors of GBV, in line with Outcome 3 and 5 of the Call to Action Roadmap. In addition, PRM prioritizes submissions that contribute to a broader evidence-base and builds upon current standards to document good approaches or practice for the wider humanitarian community.
This funding opportunity is only for proposals for globally-relevant projects that involve multiple locations and, when appropriate, multiple partners. PRM does not welcome submissions to this NOFO that are focused on country-specific implementation or general programming for affected populations that do not have global reach or application. Country-specific or country program-specific activities/interventions that are considered to be basic and standard GBV prevention and response programming will not be considered for this opportunity. (Please see PRM regional NOFO's for these purposes)
Proposals for this funding opportunity must be in line with the following themes:
Applicants should refer to the IASC’s Guidelines for Gender-based Violence Interventions for Humanitarian Settings, as applicable.
Because of PRM's mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees, returnees, and/or other persons of concern.
