Huge effort is required to write a winning funding proposal for a development project; the competition is usually stiff. After the hard work put in, it is demoralizing to come up short.
In November 2018, the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation (ACGC) hosted its second “Together” conference to mobilize and celebrate Canadian engagement in pursuit of Agenda 2030 - the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It was a remarkable gathering that, by design, underlined the universality of the SDGs.
At the conference, CAIDP offered up a skills workshop on securing funds for SDG related projects. Our three panelists shared valuable tips for making proposal stand out, specific details for accessing Global Affairs Canada funding through the Call for Proposal mechanism, and how to access the many funding mechanisms of the international financial institutions and the UN system.
