As the year-end approaches, some donors choose to publicize their future funding opportunities — including the U.K. Department for International Development, which recently released a document outlining the details of future procurement contracts in the pipeline. Devex has analyzed the data to give you a snapshot of what is coming up in 2019.
Devex takes a look at new country-based bilateral aid spending data.
In total, there are 23 new funding opportunities announced, belonging to DFID projects worth around £1.1 billion ($1.5 billion). Of those, the largest project is in South Sudan focusing on humanitarian response and resilience, worth £443 million. It is expected to start in January 2020 as phase two of an existing project being implemented between 2015 and 2020 by 18 partners, including Crown Agents, Oxfam and a number of United Nations agencies. Looking at the implementing agencies for past phases could help direct strategic decisions about partnerships for future funding opportunities.
