Recommendations on Concept Notes made by the Fund Manager Final funding decisions made by DFID Page 7 Funding Considerations While technical merit was the principal factor considered, we have also sought to achieve a balanced portfolio overall, meeting the following criteria: geographic areas, ensuring coverage of DFID priority countries cross-cutting issues such as gender equality; inclusion of different sizes and types of civil society organisation; spread of risk among wider set of

organisations. Page 8 Proposals Supported Of the 272 proposals we appraised we considered almost 100 to be of a high quality The total value of these high quality proposals was almost 300m We had only a 130m budget The quality and level of innovation demonstrated by proposals exceeded our expectations

This allowed us a valuable degree of choice but also meant that many high-quality applications could not be funded We were able to offer support to 38 applicants Page 9 Proposals Supported Recommended projects by region Lat Am, 3 Middle East, 1 Africa, 17 Global, 11 Asia, 6
