UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 and the following resolutions 1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2016 and 2122 all highlight the importance of women’s participation and protection in conflict and post-conflict situations. Each year the FBA grants funds to projects that support the implementation of those resolutions, with a specific focus on projects that promote women’s equal participation in issues concerning peace and security. The projects should have a strong local ownership and contribute to support capacity-building for women’s organizations and/or local women’s groups.
Numerous organizations apply for the funds each year, and the FBA cannot guarantee the success of a specific application. Neither funds to end or continue projects that have been granted funding earlier, nor funds for projects that are undertaken during the course of more than 15 months, can be guaranteed. The FBA evaluates all applications and publicly announces the allocation of funds every year. The selection of accepted applications is strictly criteria-based.
When to apply?
Funds are granted once a year. The last day for applications is on November 1 of each year.
Who can apply?
Swedish and international organizations and foundations working with projects meeting our criteria may apply.
