Zambia: EU Gives State, NGOs €7.6m Grant

The European Union (EU) has given a total grant of 7.6 million Euros (KR55 million) to four Government institutions and eight non-governmental organisations (NGOs), under the 'Non State Actors and Local Authorities in Development' programme, which aims at encouraging non-state actors and local authorities to get more involved in development issues.
The specific grant is aimed at supporting implementation of health, education, sustainable livelihood, governance, and water and sanitation projects in Zambia.
The local authorities have been selected after a Call for Proposals in March last year. They are supposed to use the funds to carry out, among other projects, improved water, sanitation and waste management and building capacity to implement preventive health services.
Some of the NGOs include Care International, Centre for Infectious Diseases Research in Zambia (CIRDZ), DanChurch Aid and Marie Stopes. The recipients of the funds are Mongu Municipal Council, Petauke District Council, Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company and Kafue District Health Management Team.
The size of grants for actions proposed by NSAs ranges between EUR 350, 000 and EUR 750, 000 while support for LAs ranges between EUR 200, 000 and EUR 400, 000. The programme was introduced by the European Commission in 2007.
Other two calls for proposals were announced-  one for non-state actors and one for local authorities, with an estimated three million Euros and 800,000 Euro respectively.
