Colombia, Panama, Peru
The Conflict, Stability and Security Fund- CSSF is the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) global fund supporting the efforts in the region to tackle illicit economies, serious and organised crime and corruption in Colombia, Peru and Panama primarily (but with potential to cover linked events in other neighbouring countries). They are seeking an implementer to undertake a regional investigative journalism project which focuses on the dynamics of corruption, serious and organised crime and illicit economies. How these dynamics are interacting with the current COVID-19 pandemic might also be a focus of project activity.
The ultimate form of the project depends upon the project implementer but might include the following:
- creating a new platform that strengthens media organisation throughout the region and provides journalists with a platform in which they can collaborate and build regional stories on the key thematic areas, as well as to provide them with instruments to enhance their investigative journalism capacity
- providing a new network of support to journalists already working in this area and further increasing their capacity as well as the possibility of investigative journalism in the key thematic areas appearing in regional press outlets
- support to the operations of a pre-existing media organisation/alliance already working in these thematic to enhance capabilities/expand their ambition
Eligibility is not determined in the call.
Actions must take place in Colombia, Peru and Panama.
The grant size is not mentioned.
Potential implementers are invited to submit a Concept Note to claudia.castilla(a)fco.gov.uk and cianan.good(a)fco.gov.uk by Thursday 18 June 2020, 11.59 p. m. Bogota time (template attached). Concept bids should be no more than 3 pages in length. The deadline for submitting the full project proposal will then be Sunday 5 July by 11.59 p. m. Bogota time (again, only implementers that are asked to by the Embassy should send full proposals).
