Does your company want to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals and at the same time seek business opportunities? Then the Danida Market Development Partnerships (DMDP) programme is a good opportunity. DMDP promotes commercially oriented partnerships, which contribute to market development and promote economic growth and employment in developing countries.

The 2019 Application Round is Open with a Deadline for Submission 09 August 2019 (5pm CET)

DMDP is now open for applications from potential partnerships. DMDP has a budget of DKK 100 million in 2019 for between 10-12 partnerships. Concept note applications must be sent before 09 August 2019. To be considered, the partnership must as a minimum include one international commercial partner and one non-commercial partner. One of the partners must be local. A non-commercial partner must send the application.

The point of departure for a partnership project is an innovative business idea driven by one or more businesses that conduct responsible business. The business idea must support local development and contribute to promoting SDG 8 (local economic growth and employment). This is achieved by combining knowledge, solutions and resources from companies, civil society organisations, business organisations, public authorities, and non-commercial partners. This creates more transformative development results and viable business.
