Now open: call for proposals for think-tank projects under the Bangladesh Transformative Economic Policy Programme (TEPP)

Kivu International, in partnership with the FCDO and the IGC, are pleased to announce a new call for proposals focused on Bangladesh under the ‘Transformative Economic Policy Programme (TEPP)’. Think-tanks in Bangladesh are invited to submit proposals for research with the aim of supporting the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) to deliver an effective, inclusive, and environmentally sustainable response and recovery from the COVID-19 economic crisis.

We are particularly interested in projects that address these issues through one of our three themes – green growth; inclusive and resilient job creation; and domestic resource mobilisation – all of which play a crucial role in building resilience and promoting sustainable growth. Project proposals should seek to address policy issues that related to one of these themes. Covid-19 recovery will be a cross-cutting theme. Applicants should set out how their project proposal relates to Covid-19 policy responses and economic recovery.

The deadline for submissions is 23:59 GMT on 21st November 2021. Please contact Jess Latchford ( if you have any questions or require further information. For details on the programme and how to apply please see the documents listed below:
