Offering grants of up to $1 million, this competition is seeking to support innovative solutions — or to scale up those that are already working — that fall within one or more of the following focus areas: technology, financing, including risk transfer mechanisms; measurement and diagnostics (tools that enable better understanding problems and risk caused by water); policy; and learning and innovation (including community practices that enhance awareness, education, engagement, female empowerment, and action orientation).
In this exclusive Devex webinar, representatives from Zurich Insurance Group and KPMG, on behalf of the Resilience Partnership, discuss the Water Window challenge, its structure and application process, and answer questions from potential challenge participants.
The challenge is welcoming creative proposals before the May 8 deadline. Finalists will be announced at the end of August 2016, after evaluation by a panel drawn from a pool of technical resilience and grant specialists, as well as representatives from Zurich Insurance Group and the Resilience Partnership.
The above webinar focuses on the Sahel region. You can watch webinars for the Horn of Africa region here and the South and Southeast Asia region here.
Any questions not addressed in these webinars can be directed to the Global Resilience Partnership through email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
