Business Partnership Facility: Enterprises for SDGs

The Business Partnership Facility (BPF) supports ‘civil society-enterprise’ partnerships engaged in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries, financed by the Belgian Directorate-General for Development (DGD).

On the initiative of, and with financing from the Belgian DGD, the Business Partnership Facility (BPF) awards subsidies to support and develop private sector involvement in SDGs in developing countries.

What does the BPF support ?

The BPF supports entrepreneurial partnerships between companies and actors from the Civil Society (CSO’s) contributing to SDGs in 52 countries.

In Africa, these are: Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, DR Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, and Zambia.

Two types of results should be achieved simultaneously:

  • Social impact: for example creation and maintenance of jobs, improvement in average income for families with low incomes, access to affordable goods and services for those on low incomes (by gender), inclusion and economic development of women and young people with low incomes, positive impact on the environment through saving resources, reducing CO2 emissions and by preserving biodiversity etc.
  • Economic viability: partnerships must clearly explain how supported initiatives will become sustainable, present a competitive financial performance and show signs of potential scalability and replicability.
