We invite public and private sector organisations operating in African, Caribbean, or Pacific (ACP) countries to submit proposals to receive free technical assistance aimed at advancing Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE). The ICR Facility can help you unlock the immense potential of women as entrepreneurs, workers, and investees in ACP countries.
Public and private sector organisations in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (see full list of eligible countries) are eligible to submit proposals. This includes government agencies, business associations, chambers of commerce, development finance institutions, and women business organisations.

We are looking for committed organisations with specific proposals to promote Women’s Economic Empowerment through business environment reforms. Please submit your proposal online, and let us support you. Your proposal should include:
You will partner with a Facility that has a track record to implement technical assistance interventions across more than 60 countries. You will receive targeted international and local expertise and gain international exposure for your reform efforts. The ICR Facility can provide targeted technical assistance for up 90 expert days which can be deployed within one year. To a limited extend, we can also support the logistical costs for workshops and consultation meetings to help shape your policy and reform ideas. It’s important to note that our support does not encompass grants, funding for your organisation’s staff, conference expenses, or the procurement of equipment.
Please submit a proposal by December 12th, 2023. Our team will assess the proposals and will let you know if your proposal was selected before January 30th, 2024.
