Call for proposals

The Southern Africa Trust was established in 2005 to support civil society organisations in southern Africa to participate effectively and with credibility in policy dialogue so that the voices of the poor can have a better impact in the development of public policies.

The Southern Africa Trust (the Trust) invites proposals from South African civil society, NGOs, academic institutions/think tanks and private sector organisations able to make a high impact contribution in addressing the challenges of migration, peace and security and climate change in Africa.

The UK’s bilateral aid programme to South Africa concluded in 2015, after 21 years. The Department for International Development (DFID)’s work in South Africa now focusses on UK-South Africa development partnerships, designed to address shared development challenges in Africa. This reflects the agreement made between Ministers, at the 2015 UK-South Africa Bilateral Forum, ‘to enhance partnerships to accelerate the implementation of the Global Goals in Africa’. One new programme designed to facilitate this is the UK-South Africa Development Partnerships in Africa (USDPA) programme.
