Criteria for Review
In order for an application to be considered valid, each of the essential criteria (Annex A) must be met. Valid applications will be reviewed by an independent roster of experts who will carry out a detailed review of the entire application, marking it for its general quality and potential impact. In addition to an overall narrative and recommendation, the reviewer will be asked to comment on four key areas.
- Demonstration of contextual challenges and the need to intervene – Proposals should be grounded in rigorous and documented evidence, clearly outlining the need for action at the national, sub-national or transnational level.
- Level of co-ordination at the national or transnational level – Co-ordination between key actors at the national or transnational level is key to delivery of effective OCSE programming.
- Likelihood of Impact and Results – In this category the reviewer will need to make a judgement of the overall probability of successful delivery of the program and the chance that the predicted impact and results will be realised. With this in mind, the reviewer will also be asked to identify whether there is a well-articulated monitoring and evaluation plan and whether the program is likely to deliver value for money.
- Alignment with the WePROTECT Model National Response – Proposals should recognize the WePROTECT Model National Response (Annex B) and demonstrate alignment with their interventions.
Must be for:
- Requests between $250,000 to $1million
- Official Development Assistance (ODA) eligible purposes
- Duration 1-3 years
- Targeting online child sexual exploitation in line with the WePROTECT Model National Response
