Our thematic grants provide funding to organisations to deliver capacity development support in specific targeted areas.
CSSP supports CSOs to contribute effectively and efficiently towards Ethiopia’s development, and the programme converges with the federal government’s principle development strategy – the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP, 2010-15). CSSP grants make thematic links with the GTP priority sectors, with the greatest share of grants focused on cross-sectoral issues, and women, children and youth. This not only reflects CSSP’s goal to specifically target organisations supporting hard-to-reach women and children, but is also indicative of the multi-dimensional nature of sustainable development challenges in Ethiopia, requiring CSOs to be adaptable.
Supports CSSP partners’ activities in the thematic areas of:
- Just relationships between women and men, girls and boys;
- Climate-smart resilient livelihoods (focused on hard-to-reach people most affected by climate change)
CSSP has awarded 7 thematic grants.
