DFID country offices have a mature portfolio of business environment reform programmes that are delivering strong results – making it easier for firms to set up, grow and create jobs. But this portfolio is expected to expand as part of DFID’s scale-up of its Economic Development work – around half of DFID country offices cited the business environment as a barrier in their Inclusive Growth Diagnostics. BERF has been set up to help Country Offices to make this shift and to provide easy access to expert advice to help with programme design, start-up, monitoring and, if necessary, course correction. It will also help DFID learn and disseminate the lessons from its programmes more systematically, carry out policy research to help our understanding of how reforms really work, and develop innovative approaches for involving stakeholders in reform programmes. BERF has a budget of £7.8m and will run until January 2019. BERF offers a menu of services for Country Offices to choose from based on their needs, as set out under the 5 Activities below. These Activities were designed based on feedback from Country Offices on what would be useful and are intended to be as broad as possible. – BERF is funded by DFID’s Investment Climate Team and is being managed by Tim Green, Sim Paton, Carl Aaron and Gillian Mitchell. KPMG is lead contractor of the implementing Consortium consisting of DAI, Itad, Social Development Direct, Law and Development Partnership, Triple Line, McKinsey, The Policy Practice, Restless Development and a range of academic institutions and independent consultants.

Improving maternal and neonatal health outcomes for women and newborn babies in the Western Area of Sierra Leone through community engagement and health systems strenghteningWelbodi Partnership
Women and infants who receive higher-quality obstetric and neonatal care at PCMH, as a result of changes implemented by Quality Improvement Groups (this also includes women participating in women’s groups and those accessing antenatal care, the majority of whom will deliver at PCMH): 5,000 deliveries per year * 3 years = 15,000 mothers + 15,000 babies = 30,000 beneficiaries (75% female). This is a conservative estimate, as we expect patient numbers to increase over the life of the grant. Total: 30,000 (75% female)
Reducing FGM/C and other harmful traditional practices to improve maternal health among girls and women in Tulla sub-city, Hawassa municipality, southern Ethiopia.Disability and Development Partners

The hidden peace-builders: from ambivalence to engagement, strengthening the role of local faith actors in peace-building and reconciliationUK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
1) Our key aim during the Development Award is to press on with growing a strong, interdisciplinary and equitable network of Global South and North research and peace-building organisations as either the basis for launching the Network Plus in April 2020 or as the cornerstone of identifying new funding possibilities with a firm proposal that is ready to go. There is, however, inherent value in identifying and bringing actors with this interest together for networking, regardless of success in future funding schemes. 2) To organise our activities during the Development Award, and to support equitable and sustainable partnerships by addressing the specific feedback on our outline proposal. There will be three stages to how we tackle the feedback and begin to develop the Network Plus. First, there are areas to be addressed as we prepare the full proposal; second, there are areas to work on further in the period between proposal submission and learning the outcome of the call; and, third, there are areas that will be the focus of work either coinciding with the start of the Network Plus or forming a period where we work towards seeking additional funding to support this work beyond the end of June 2020. 3) To build an international, cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary network through the establishment of regional hubs in South Sudan, Sri Lanka and the Philippines. This will consist of academics, humanitarian/development organisations, grassroots civil society organisations (CSOs), local government, and faith actors working together to better understand and improve the role of local faith actors (LFAs) in peace building and reconciliation, with the aim of improving the lives of the most marginalised, including religious minorities, children and women. While the hubs are in three countries, they are to be regional hubs to facilitate engagement from stakeholders across East Africa, South Asia and South East Asia, regions with complex and diverse histories of conflict. 4) To speak into gaps within the UN's 'New Way of Working' (NWoW), promoted since the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit. This means that humanitarian, development and peace actors are recommended to work together (the 'triple nexus') and to better understand and remove any barriers preventing engagement with local actors. While there is a mandate for international peace building, humanitarian and development actors to work closely together and with all local actors, LFAs have been generally been excluded from the NWoW. 5) To begin to develop networks and research that enables the greater visibility of LFAs at the local, national and global levels. They are often hidden to all but their very immediate communities due to the grassroots and small-scale nature of their activities. This is in line with the so-called, 'Grand Bargain' and outcome of the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit. This commits donors to provide 25% of humanitarian funding to local/national responders by 2020 and encourages humanitarian actors to better understand and to remove any barriers preventing engagement with local actors. There is a mandate for international peace-building, humanitarian and development actors to work closely together and with all local actors, including LFAs. 6) To lay the ground work for developing curricula with project partners World Vision International and Islamic Relief Worldwide, including e-learning versions, for use by development and humanitarian organisations, grassroots CSOs and local government to equip them to engage LFAs in peace building processes, along with guidance and tools for monitoring and evaluation (M&E) for these actors. The need for this has been recognised by the project partners. Attention has tended to focus on the work of higher-level faith actors, including national religious councils and internationally focused religious leaders, rather than LFAs. Where there has been work with LFAs this has not been researched or evaluated.
