Global Water Challenge Announces Next Generation of New World Program
 

To commemorate World Water Day, The Coca-Cola Foundation (TCCF)  and Global Water Challenge (GWC) announced the next generation of their ongoing partnership to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)  across Eurasia, the Middle East, and North Africa through the New World Program (NWP).

The NWP will provide catalytic grants totaling nearly US$1.4 million for two long-standing program pillars – water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and youth and women’s economic empowerment. As part of the program’s fourth Generation, TCCF and GWC are excited to introduce the addition of a third program pillar that will focus on Climate Resilience with an emphasis on Marine Litter, Recycling, and Sustainable Packaging.

The catalytic NWP grant funding will be awarded through a Call for Proposals set to close on April 30, 2018. Selected projects will launch in September 2018. Funding will be awarded to organizations working in the following 14 countries: Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Pakistan, Romania, Tajikistan, Turkey, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Organizations that are eligible for NWP funding include: non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community-based organizations (CBOs), civil society organizations (CSOs), development cooperatives, regional development agencies, and capacity development institutes.

“GWC is proud to collaborate with The Coca-Cola Foundation to advance progress on the SDGs in partnership with communities around the world,” said Monica Ellis, CEO of Global Water Challenge.  

The NWP was originally launched in 2014 as a partnership mechanism between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and TCCF. This will be the fourth cohort of projects mobilized through the NWP to date and the second year of programming managed by GWC. A leading not-for-profit 501(c)3 with over a decade of experience supporting high-impact WASH programming and partnerships around the world, GWC will leverage its extensive network and management expertise for the continued benefit of the NWP partnership.
