The Innovations Against Poverty project
SNV is implementing the second phase of a multi country Innovations Against Poverty (IAP) project (2020- 2023) with funding from Swedish International Development Agency (Sida). SNV is supported by BoP Innovation Centre and Inclusive Business Sweden in implementing the project across Cambodia, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Zambia. The overall goal of the project is to reduce poverty and improve living conditions for the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) population. The IAP Programme challenges private sector enterprises to implement innovative business projects that deliver both commercial benefits for the companies themselves and development benefits for the people living in poverty in terms of job creation, income improvement, access to basic goods and services and contribute to environmental sustainability.
The programme provides inclusive business co-investment funding ranging from EUR 50,000-200,000 and business advisory support covering developing and rolling out inclusive business models in low-income markets, professional business operations and management, innovations, and investment matchmaking for scaling up investments from the private sector.
The programme started in September 2016 and runs until the end of 2023. An initial cohort of 35 grantees were contracted in 2017/2018, of which 23 successfully completed their planned activities by early 2021. An additional 21 grantees were selected by the end of 2020. From the 21 grantees, 4 are from Zambia and have already commenced implementation of their activities.
