  • GHAI also encourages novel/innovative approaches to address food policy priorities. If there is a novel/innovative element to your proposal, please be sure to describe this in your application.
  • When assessing concept notes, GHAI will consider the following criteria:
    • Quality of the proposal
    • Geography and population size
    • Timebound political opportunity
    • Strength of organization(s) (i.e., advocacy and institutional capacity)
