New fund for development partnerships announced
Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully today announced the establishment of a new contestable partnerships fund for New Zealand organisations carrying out development work off-shore.
The New Zealand Partnerships for International Development Fund will make up to NZ$32 million per year available for New Zealand agencies across all sectors - NGO, state and private.
The fund draws on the policy settings and parameters of the previous Sustainable Development Fund (SDF), but it is broader and more flexible, giving a variety of organisations access to aid programme funding in a new way.
Mr McCully's media release is available here.
Information on the New Zealand Partnerships for International Development Fund, for which applications close on 16 November 2012, is available at http://www.aid.govt.nz/
