Solar Irrigation for Agricultural Resilience (SoLAR) Innovation Fund (IF) Grants: Round 2

The Leading House South Asia and Iran (ZHAW) announces the second round of call for proposals for the SoLAR Innovation Fund (IF). The IF aims to support the development and testing of technological, financial and institutional innovations to address the constraints and challenges of scaling solar irrigation, with a special focus on the problems faced by small-scale, marginal, and women farmers in South Asia (specifically Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Pakistan). Furthermore, it will aim to support innovations and practices that can influence policy or be expanded and integrated into public, donor and private sector programs and practices with the support of additional funding sources. The call is issued by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), a CGIAR Research Center and funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
