Starting in July 2022, the SMEP programme will launch a staggered set of open calls for innovative projects to reduce or eliminate waste and manufacturing pollution in target countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Projects should result in either proof of concept or a piloted solution, or both.
A two-stage application process will be followed: In Stage 1, applicants will be invited to submit a concept, and in Stage 2, shortlisted applicants will be requested to submit detailed proposals. Implementation of successful applications should be able to start by no later than April 2023. To start the application process for funding, please register your interest here.
Individual Terms of Reference will be provided for each call. Read more here
