APWLD is inviting women’s rights and feminist organizations in the region to apply for the Women2030 Sub-grant: National Monitoring and Review of the Sustainable Development Goals and Development Justice. In this Women2030 Sub-granting project, APWLD will partner and support eight organisations to do follow-up and review of the SDGs implementation in their country using the Feminist Development Justice as a framework and to carry out advocacy based on it.
APWLD will provide each partner organisations with a small sub-grant between $15,000 – $17,000 USD to support the employment of a dedicated staff coordinator to carry out the project for 15 months. This small grant will cover some salary costs, contribute to national or local consultations with a broad range of community groups, civil society and development actors, and carry out advocacy aimed to ensure that development policies and agenda are informed and shaped by needs of women and their communities.
APWLD will also support staff from each organisation in regional-level capacity building workshops and provide advocacy or network opportunities. They will access trainings and skill shares in media advocacy, data gathering and analysis, research methods, gender assessments, participatory baseline setting and other necessary skills for the project. The organisation will then share their acquired knowledge and tools with civil society groups locally through a combination of trainings, meetings, online tools and platforms, etc.
Through this project, APWLD has built capacity and provided resources and tools to national and local feminist and women’s rights organizations to produce their own analysis, critique and provide recommendation on their government’s commitments and implementations of the SDGs using Development Justice as a framework. The project also provide organisations with an opportunity to influence the national and local policies and framework for the SDGs implementations and to be part of larger and stronger local, regional and global movements of feminists and peoples’ organizations and networks working to achieve Development Justice.
This project will be coordinated by the Feminist Development Justice (FDJ) Programme for 2018-2019. A selection committee comprised of the FDJ programme committee and APWLD secretariat will select eight to ten organisations that will conduct monitoring and review of their priority goals and targets as well as a set of Development Justice Indicators.
