Technical Assistance to the full Second Round of Application to the Danida Market Development Partnerships Programme 2017
NCG has recently been assigned by Danida to provide technical guidance to the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the full process of the Danida Market Development Partnerships Programme (DMPD) 2017.
The DMPD was launched in 2016 and is a new business programme, which overall objective is to contribute to sustainable economic growth and employment in developing countries with a focus on the Sustainable Development Goal 8. The DMPD follows a challenge fund modality, and is implemented through a number of partnerships projects driven by partner consortia. Partner consortiums are invited to submit a proposal for a business idea with a development objective, which will then have the chance of being selected as a pilot project and be implemented in the partner countries with support from Danida.
The role of NCG experts Marie-Louise Appelquist, Geert Aagard Andersen with help of Mikkel Klim will be to evaluate the Concept Note applications, invite 7-8 partner consortia to develop a full Project Proposal and approve 7-8 finalized full Project Proposals in 2018. The scope of work includes e.g. drafting of Concept Notes Assessment Report, plan and participate in meetings with partner consortia, assessment of Full Project Proposals and provide inputs to Programme level Results Framework.
