This Request for Proposal (RFP) invites concept papers for the SERVIR-HKH Small Grants Programme managed by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). Proposals are funded by ICIMOD through an award from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). In partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), USAID supports ICIMOD within the global SERVIR partnership. The SERVIR-HKH Small Grants will help grow the network of organizations, universities, and institutions within the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region that utilize geospatial and Earth science tools and services to improve decision-making related to sustainable mountain development with a special focus on climate vulnerability, mitigation, or adaptation. This RFP is open for ICIMOD/SERVIR-HKH focused countries – Bangladesh, Nepal, and Pakistan.

ICIMOD/SERVIR-HKH anticipates awarding 4-5 grants to fund successful applications.  The implementation phase of the grant will be 24 months, with an additional two months for closeout and final reporting. A project funded under this RFP should not exceed USD 30,000. ICIMOD/SERVIR-HKH may choose to fully fund or incrementally fund the selected application(s).

After the first round of evaluation, full proposals will be requested for selected concept papers. We are seeking applicants who propose creative and effective approaches with a focus on climate change decision-making using geospatial information as outlined in the overview section. Applicants may choose from among a range of initiatives or scale up small projects that have demonstrated success within the framework of SERVIR-HKH services. Awardees will be expected to share evaluation results and key lessons, and disseminate periodic activities and outcomes with the broader community.

More details on the RFP are available on our website.
