What are your views on the overall design and scope of the Poverty Impact Fund?
Other DFID funds
Research can be an important component of projects to improve service delivery, especially in terms of helping to determine what does and does not work. Clarification is needed on what research is permitted under this fund.
Discrimination against certain groups. It is vital that this clause is worded in such a way to ensure that projects aimed at harder-to-reach groups: women, people living in rural areas, people living with HIV AIDs, are not excluded.
What are your comments on particular elements of the design:
The number of grants that can be held by a CSO at any one time
Matched funding levels
