The World Bank Group and the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI)today announced a new open call for awards recognizing promising innovations aimed at preventing and responding to gender-based violence. Applications for the Development Marketplace for Innovation in Addressing Gender-Based Violence.

SVRI and the World Bank Group will disburse more than US$1 million to advance evidence-based interventions to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) in low- and middle-income countries. An expert panel will select winners engaged in research, interventions, or other activities related to GBV prevention and response based on overall merit, research/project design and methods, significance, project manager/team, and ethical considerations. This year, the Call for Proposals includes the private sector; companies that have engaged in preventing and responding to GBV are encouraged to apply.

Application Requirements:

  • All applications must be submitted and received via the SVRI and World Bank Group Grant Awards online system by midnight (South African Standard Time, or 4:59:59 EST) September 5, 2018.
  • Only applications submitted through the online system before the closing date and time will be considered. Winners will be announced in April 2019. The Development Marketplace is sponsored by the World Bank Group and SVRI in honor of GBV victims and survivors around the world, and in memory of Hannah Graham, daughter of a longtime World Bank Group employee.
