ECW Concept_Note_Template 20181029
Education Cannot Wait (ECW) makes funding available from three Windows*:
1- The First Emergency-Response (FER) Window
This window responds to the most urgent needs as a crisis suddenly occurs or escalates. It provides rapid funding against an inter-agency coordinated proposal and is aligned with inter-agency planning and resource mobilization strategies, such as Flash Appeals and Humanitarian Response Plans. Projects are for a maximum of 12 months and are prepared at the country-level through relevant coordinating body for education in the country affected, such as the Education Cluster, Education in Emergencies (EiE) Working Group, local Education group (LEG). ECW does not accept unsolicited single grantee applications.
2- The Multi-Year Resilience (MYR) Window
The MYR window supports more collaborative education responses in protracted crisis countries shifting the focus to joint analysis, multiyear-planning and joint-programming. Integrating immediate and medium-term responses, it is geared towards bringing in long-term predictable financing and thereby bridging relief to development. For the period 2018-2021, ECW will target its multi-year support to 25 priority countries identified in its strategic plan. Preparation of the 3-4 years joint programmes, prioritization of activities and selection of grantees is undertaken at the country level by an ECW Task Force.
3- The Acceleration Facility
The aim of the Acceleration Facility is to support activities and research that feed into broader collective efforts at all levels to improve education preparedness, planning and response in sudden-onset and protracted crises. The development of the Acceleration Facility strategy is currently ongoing. Once finalized, calls for proposals will be published on the ECW website.
*Gender equality and equity is a pillar of ECW investments. As such, the gender perspective is integrated in all proposed programming. For more information refer to ECW’s Gender Strategy.
