1) Objective

The Impact Catalyst Fund (‘ICF’) is a strategic initiative of the UNICEF Evaluation Office that aims to support high-quality impact evaluations in priority thematic areas of the UNICEF Strategic Plan 2022–2025. The first ICF call, focusing on the thematic area of child marriage and social norms was launched in March 2023 and has garnered significant interest resulting in applications from 6 out of 7 UNICEF regions. Ultimately, six proposals were selected to receive matching grants to support the design and primary data collection for rigorous impact evaluations.

This second ICF call for proposals in 2023 focuses on the thematic area of Adaptive Social Protection (ASP). Generating scientifically robust evidence on this topic enables national partners to make scientifically grounded decisions to build and strengthen ASP systems. Furthermore, it allows for the replication of successful interventions and the improvement of child-focused outcomes in fragile contexts. This call is implemented through a broader five-year evaluation partnership between the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and UNICEF.

2) Eligibility

The current Call for Proposals invites UNICEF country offices (COs) to submit a proposal to conduct a rigorous impact evaluation for the planned or ongoing programme/intervention.

3) Location

Eligible are: (1) Countries with ‘severe’ or ‘high’ environmental fragility status (countries with recurring severe shocks related to climate change in the form of droughts, floods or other extreme weather events); (2) Geographic hot spots prone to climate change disasters layered over other elements of fragility with highly vulnerable populations including refugee and displaced populations (e.g., Horn of Africa).

4) Budget

The grant size is not mentioned.

5) Application

All proposals should be sent to iecfeval@unicef.org by 15 January 2024.
