Cross Cutting Issues

ICCO Cooperation, with its roots in the Netherlands, is currently engaged in development efforts across 44 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. ICCO has collaborated with multiple development actors like private sector, government, non-governmental organizations, knowledge institutes and community based organisations to bring lasting positive changes in the lives of the communities they work with.

Historically, majority of ICCO’s funding came from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. After the budget cuts in 2010, ICCI have been looking to mobilize resources from others institutional donors, multilateral organisations, and foundations, etc.


The specific objectives of this assignment were as follows:
• To develop an updated mapping of five major donors: USAID, DFID, The World Bank, European Union, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
• To suggest at least two most relevant and potential new donors for each country based on the readings and alignment with ICCO’s work in the three countries

Services provided by SW Nepal

SW Nepal carried out this study using secondary information using publicly available sources. All of these sources were examined in detail to assess the potential for programme/donor matches and cooperation with ICCO in the future.


This assignment helped to identify potential donors and map their existing and upcoming programs to assist ICCO’s fundraising activities in Bangladesh, India and Nepal.
