The World Bank has opened a call for agriculture and logistics focused solutions for a government of Liberia urban development project.
The World Bank is helping the Government of Liberia to prepare an urban development project for the capital city Monrovia and its region.
An objective of this project would be to deliver off-network decentralized solutions for service delivery (across sectors) and create jobs. Given resource constraints, both human and capital, sustainable service delivery solutions that maximize finance, improve access, service quality, ensure improved outcomes and reduce government financial risks will need to be found.
Consequently, under this project, the World Bank is looking to identify social enterprises that can improve last mile service delivery or create jobs for marginalized populations, including developing agribusiness opportunities.
It has partnered Intellecap in a bid to identify social enterprises with proven business models that are willing to expand into or across Liberia or to replicate an existing model from another country into Liberia.
This Call for Application is to identify social enterprises that have a proven business model and are willing to expand their existing businesses within Liberia or to replicate an existing model from another country into Liberia.
The World Bank project will be providing grant financing and facilitation support for replication to Liberia. The responses from this application will be used to conduct the first shortlisting of companies who would subsequently be invited for an Interview that will mark the second shortlisting.
The companies that will be selected post the second shortlisting, will then be invited to write business development proposals to receive grant support from the World Bank project to replicate in Liberia. We, therefore, encourage you to fill the form as accurately as possible.
Deadline: April 5, 2019. Apply by filling out the application form here.
