RFP 2023-21 – Country Needs Assessment in Indonesia
GCERF is the first global effort to support local, community-level initiatives aimed at strengthening resilience against violent extremist agendas. To date GCERF has committed approximately USD 22 million in donor funds to the Asia-Pacific region, representing nearly 30% of GCERF’s portfolio since the global fund to prevent violent extremism was launched in 2014. Regionally, these investments have directly engaged more than one million people in initiatives to prevent extremist recruitment and to promote tolerance and peace. Indonesia is currently ranked 24th on the 2023 Global Terrorism Index and one of the three countries in Southeast Asia where the impact of terrorism has increased since 2022. In this context, GCERF’s Board has called for programming engagement in Indonesia, in line with its mandate to support local, community-level initiatives aimed at strengthening resilience against violent extremist agendas in close coordination with national and regional authorities. We wish to conduct a Needs Assessment in Indonesia to inform the development of GCERF’s Investment Strategy for Indonesia, and the design and delivery of possible GCERF programmatic support in Indonesia in greater harmony and synergy with existing and planned interventions. The terms of reference outline our approach and requirements. The NA has two objectives: 1. Enhance GCERF understanding on the dynamics of vulnerabilities to violent extremism; 2. Identify opportunities for programmatic interventions, including cross-border, with organic links to national and international efforts in targeted areas. The NA will focus on specific regions within Indonesia, particularly West Java, Central Java, and West Nusa Tenggara. This selection is based on the findings derived from the CT/VE Outlook developed by the I-KHub, indicating that radicalization and recruitment are most prevalent in this area. Moreover, West Java is also distinctive for its significant terrorist inmate population and its remarkable track record in successfully reintegrating former terrorist prisoners . It will consist of three main components: A literature review, in-country research (partner consultation, community focus groups, and a subject matter expert workshop), and the production of an analytical report. Proposals should follow the template provided below. Failure to follow the proposal structure or to comply with the instructions in this Request for Proposal will be at the bidder’s risk and may affect the evaluation of the proposal. Proposals may be sent by email clearly marked under subject: “Bid reference: RFP 2023-21 Indonesia CAN” in the form of “pdf files”. The email should be addressed to email@example.com. Deadline for submission is 15 October 2023 midnight (CET). For more details: RFP 2023-21 Country Needs Assessment in Indonesia
