Yes, to ensure that women’s knowledge, expertise, skills, perspectives, and needs are acknowledged and integrated into the response particularly at the district level, The UN Women has launched a call for proposals for the Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF).
The focus of this WPHF call for proposals is on women’s participation in Beirut’s explosion response and recovery process. Special attention will be provided to applications from the small women-led organization and women’s rights organization and proposals that target in their approaches women and girls who face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination, such as those marginalized and excluded due to poverty, ethnicity, disability, age, geography, sexual orientation, lack of citizenship or because of their migratory status. The call encourages joint applications.
The overall goal of the WPHF’s theory of change is to contribute to peaceful and gender-equal societies. Achievement of this goal will require that women are empowered to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from conflict prevention, crisis response, peacebuilding, and recovery. Since its launch in 2016, WPHF has been supporting over 200 civil society organizations and is present in 20 countries or a group of countries.
The proposal submitted must be aligned to the following WPHF Impact area: Impact Area 6 (Peacebuilding & Recovery): Improved socio-economic recovery and political participation of women and girls in peacebuilding contexts.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 8-Mar-2021.
