P4G funds start-up and scale-up partnerships.
P4G (Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030), a new initiative to advance partnerships among governments, businesses and civil society, has opened their 2019 global call for applications to identify public-private partnerships pursuing innovative, game-changing sustainability projects in developing countries that would benefit from funding and facilitation support.
Partnerships can apply for either start-up funding of up to US $100,000 or scale-up funding up to US $1 million. To qualify, partnerships must have projects in one of P4G’s five core areas:
- food and agriculture
- the circular economy
Partnerships can submit their applications online from November 30, 2018 through February 15, 2019.
In 2018, P4G selected 24 partnerships to receive funding and facilitation support. Collectively, P4G awarded US $5.4 million in funding to these partnerships. These include partnerships working to advance electric bus deployment in Latin America, eliminate plastic and packaging waste in ecommerce deliveries in China, increase renewable energy in sub-Saharan Africa, reduce food loss and waste in Indonesia, and expand clean energy investments in developing countries.
P4G is funded by the governments of Denmark and the Netherlands. P4G Partner countries include: Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea and Vietnam.
