What’s Coming Up On the Blog in the Next Few Weeks

It’s now been 2 months since we started this blog and we are gathering more and more stories to bring you from our work in the region.

As we look ahead to the start of the South East Asia Prosperity Fund bidding round at the end of November, I wanted to give you a flavour of what’s coming up on the blog over the next few weeks.

Looking forward, you can expect more posts around the call for bids.  There will be some helpful tips on what to look out for, some examples of previous successful projects as well as a timetable on the bidding round. We are excited to bring you more content on the projects we are currently running and the initiatives we are looking at for the future.

I will be putting together a piece on my top tips for surviving the bidding rounds and Ben Chew is writing a piece on his experiences of looking back at past projects in Indonesia and how they have had an impact on policy there.

We can also expect more pieces from colleagues on their experiences working with the Prosperity Fund in our in-country focus blogs.  We will be inviting a series of guest bloggers to contribute to their experiences too, pieces from organisations and agencies who ran successful projects in previous years and their insights on the outcomes and the challenges they faced.

If you haven’t had chance to check out our previous blogs, please do have a read.  Peter Mumford, the FCO’s SE Asia Regional Director for Economic & Trade Policy is writing an excellent 4 part series on policy work in the region, and we will be looking forward to the second instalment coming soon.

So bookmark us, subscribe to our feeds, and watch this space for more upcoming posts over the next few days & weeks.
