1) Objective

The Digital Democracy Initiative (DDI) is a programme aimed at safeguarding inclusive democracy and human rights in the digital age. The DDI focuses on support to local civil society in the Global South, particularly in countries undergoing democratic regression and where civic space is under pressure.

The DDI programme is designed to facilitate scalability, both in terms of attracting additional donors and increasing the number of implementing partners during the implementation period 2023 to 2026. Through a Call for Proposals, the DDI will expand its support to Human Right Defenders and civil society activists in the Global South under three thematic lots:

  • Lot 1: Combatting technology facilitated gender-based violence
  • Lot 2: Leveraging digital technologies for climate activism
  • Lot 3: Strengthening youth engagement in the digital democratic space

2) Eligibility

The Call for Proposals is open to organizations representing women, youth, and marginalized groups, as well as informal actors and social movements in the Global South. The applicant can be: a single Civil Society Organisation (CSO) or Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO); a consortium where one of the members takes on the role as lead applicant. The lead applicant must be a Civil Society Organisation (CSO) or Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO).

3) Location

Actions must take place in the Global South. The number of priority countries to be included in each project must be between 5-15 countries.

4) Budget

The available budget for this call is a maximum of 147 million Danish Kroner (approximately 20 million Euro). Each applicant / consortium should submit a proposal for funding of minimum 30 mill. DKK.

5) Application

Applicants must submit concept notes by June 17, 2024, for preliminary evaluation, followed by an invitation to submit full proposals.
