The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is currently seeking applications for its Civil Society Support Programme Phase II.
- Component A: It will establish partnerships with global and British businesses to improve economic opportunities for women in their supply chains. It will work with businesses that have established supply chains in DFID countries, to:
- Identify and address barriers to low-income women’s participation in higher return jobs within supply chains, or roles not traditionally done by women
- Implement scalable or replicable interventions to address identified gender-specific barriers to empowering women such as unpaid care, discrimination and violence in the workplace. This would include building on existing corporate initiatives to scale up impact.
- Improve the data and transparency on where women already work in supply chains and identify potential benefits and opportunities for broadening this
- Component B: It will be a flexible funding mechanism which will include a helpdesk facility that provides bespoke expertise to scale up the impact of DFID and UK economic development investments on women’s economic outcomes, provides support for new partnerships with HLP members and others, and contributes to the global evidence base.
