The British Embassy in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan is now accepting project proposals for the 2020/2021 financial year that will end on 31 March 2021.

This year the British Embassy in Nur-Sultan is seeking to support small projects that aim to address issues and risks that emerged as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The projects should aim at responding to the COVID-19-related challenges through the provision of a knowledge and capacity building, analytical and advisory support, etc.

We are particularly interested in project proposals focused on:
1. Combatting the potential negative impact of COVID-19 on democracy, political and economic inclusion
2. Informing the public of the current human rights situation in the country
3. Addressing existing issues in the country’s social protection system with a particular focus on vulnerable groups
4. Supporting the country’s economic recovery by providing advisory support on economic issues, including fiscal policy, financial sector, etc.

The projects should incorporate online components, such as webinars, e-conferences, digital education, etc. which will be comprehensive, self-standing and easily accessible.

The British Embassy in Nur-Sultan is seeking to support Kazakhstan in its COVID-19 response plans, and work closely with the government bodies, civil society organizations, academic institutions, etc.
