UK Aid Match II - 2016-2020 is the next phase of DFID’s UK Aid Match scheme and has a budget of up to £157 million. UK Aid Match is DFID’s fund to increase UK public engagement in international development, while simultaneously reducing poverty and achieving the Global Goals in priority countries through funded civil society organisations. DFID aims to provide opportunities for the UK public to have a say in how UK aid is spent by offering to match every £1 donated by the public to a UK Aid Match charity appeal. CSOs use the match funding raised in the appeals to implement projects that improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. In the first phase of the UK Aid Match 2013 - 2016, a total of 62 grants were awarded to CSOs, working in 22 countries, and 3.6 million public donations were matched. Under the next phase of the scheme, UK Aid Match II, DFID would like to see an increase in the number and diversity of CSOs accessing UK Aid Match funding, a more diversified subsection of the public being reached by the appeals and engaged in international development, and more innovative or non-challenge fund methods being explored. The next phase of the scheme will have broader country eligibility criteria, which will include countries in the bottom 50 of the Human Development Index and countries that DFID considers to be highly or moderately fragile. In January 2018, DFID selected a MannionDaniels’ led consortium as Fund Manager for the next phase of UK Aid Match. The consortium partners are Education Development Trust, Oxford Policy Management, KIT Royal Tropical Institute and The Social Change Agency.
Accountability in Tanzania Phase Two (AcT2) Programme is a five year £38m, innovative and exciting programme whose purpose is to increase the responsiveness and accountability of Government in Tanzania, through a strengthened civil society. AcT2 seeks to support civil society organisations (CSOs) to implement context-specific strategic interventions that will enable them to influence positive change in the attitudes and behaviour of citizens, civil society and government, making government as a whole more responsive and accountable. The second phase started in February 2018 and will end in December 2022. The programme funds mid-to-large sized Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and is managed by KPMG Advisory Limited in Tanzania. The programme works with CSO partners supporting Tanzanian citizens to engage with and hold their government to account. This is crucial to fostering a well-functioning state that acts in the best interests of its people - in tackling corruption, efficient spending of public resources and delivering effective public services. The Tanzanian President has made anti-corruption his top priority. AcT2 partners seeks to deploy different tools and resources to equip citizens to challenge corruption rather than accept it. AcT2 programme underlines the need to bolster groups that can continue to champion pluralism, articulate the demands of citizens, and engage in constructive debate and negotiation with government. As an integrated and cohesive civil society offer, AcT2 enables DFID to deliver greater impact from our wider portfolio priorities in human development and sustainable growth teams and promoting democratic space. It will do this through focusing on governance blockages in these areas, with a focus on promoting accountability and social inclusion, especially focusing on gender, disability and youth/elderly groups. The programme has ambition to deploy different innovative approaches including policy research, advocacy, dialogue, experimentation, and brokering, and it will work with civil society, private sector actors, elected officials and faith-based groups. The four thematic priorities for the programme includes: • Civic Space (sector policy dialogues, media, voice, CS advocacy, human rights) • Social Inclusion (disability, women, girls and youth/elderly) • Anti-Corruption • Climate Change
The project will break the cycle of poverty and violence for 786 women and girls with disabilities (WGWD) in Nigeria’s FCT and Nasarawa States through social, economic and political empowerment. After three years, WGWD will have more voice, choice and control. 820 others will benefit from caregiver support groups, training or savings groups, from which increased income will indirectly benefit 3712 household members. The disability and women’s movements and 14 communities will be more inclusive.
CBM UK : Equitable Access to Education for Children with Disabilities in Malawi
RESPiRES aims to address major knowledge gaps in the implementation of Smart City initiatives to ensure sustainable outcomes for people, the environment and the economy. These aims will have a focus on social-ecological resilience across emerging (Mexico) and established (UK) economies and met in four core objectives: 1. Identify future-proof and smart tools and techniques that are available, accessible and appropriate, and could be adopted by community-based monitoring (CBM) initiatives across Smart Cities to monitor blue-spaces (e.g. wetlands, ponds, lakes and rivers) 2. Determine place-based values and perceptions of urban blue-spaces (positive and/or negative) held by local communities across demographic gradients (e.g. age, gender, wealth, health, education) 3. Co-construct and validate a suite of social-ecological resilience indicators that represent intrinsic as well as instrumental values held by local people, and can be used by local governance to deliver highly valued and resilient blue-spaces in Smart Cities 4. Identify local and regional factors that contribute to highly functional and resilient blue-spaces and associated ecosystems that provide important ecosystem services to local communities In achieving these objectives, RESPiRES will explore the role of environmental justice and equity regarding access to blue-space provision that are both healthy and valued. The co-construction process and development of a CBM programme will engage local communities in Mexico City and Bristol and encourage sustainable behaviour change through citizen participation and the co-development of knowledge. Critically, through investigation of current and emerging technologies as well as the barriers and opportunities for their use in CBM, RESPiRES will provide solid foundations for the smarter use of data and information in future Smart Cities.
