Global Development Marketplace Competition

The Global Development Marketplace competition is searching for early-stage, innovative ideas with potential for high impact in promoting Sustainable Agriculture for Development.

Proposals are welcome from all innovators: civil society groups, foundations and development agencies in the country of implementation can submit their ideas.

Other applicants – individuals, government entities and businesses – can also apply, but only if they work with a local partner.

The Global Development Marketplace competition is specifically focused on the agricultural challenges related to:

  • linking small-scale farmers to input and product markets;

  • Improving land access and tenure for poor farmers; and

  • promoting the environmental services of agriculture in addressing climate change and biodiversity conservation

    A total of US$4 million in awards is available, with a maximum award size of US$200,000 per project.

    The call for proposals closes on March 21.

    Applications will undergo a rigorous review drawing on hundreds of development experts, who will narrow down the pool of finalists to about 100 finalists.

    Finalists will participate in knowledge exchange workshops and will present their ideas to the public, World Bank staff and an international jury comprised of senior development specialists.
