Call for proposals for the Perez-Guerrero Trust Fund for South-South Cooperation (PGTF). Deadline of submission is on April 30, 2021.
The PGTF was established in 1983 by UN General Assembly Resolution 38/201. It provides seed money or catalytic financial support to cooperative projects carried out by three or more developing countries. Preference is given to projects that have the largest impact and coverage, interregional, regional, or sub-regional projects. Proposals of national nature would not be eligible for funding. Written evidence of endorsement or declared interest by the other participating developing countries should be part of the proposal. The projects must address the sectoral priorities under the Caracas Programme of Action on Economic Cooperation among Developing Countries (bit.ly/PGTFCaracas) which include trade, technology, food and agriculture, energy, raw materials, finance, industrialization, and technical cooperation.
All project proposals submitted to PGTF should include inputs from other sources of an amount at least equal to the resources requested from PGTF. These inputs should be secured by the sponsors prior to submission of the proposal to PGTF. The current maximum amount available for supporting any given project will be US$35,000, as posted on the PGTF website.
