The Japan Special Fund (JSF) was established in 1988 to finance untied, nonreimbursable technical cooperation in all IDB borrowing member countries. The JSF is the largest trust fund at the Bank, and it supports the preparation and implementation of IDB projects, as well as stand-alone projects, which are in line with the Bank's Country Strategy Papers. Eligible sectors are health, education, nutrition, water and sanitation, social development, the environment, natural disasters prevention and civil society.
The Japanese Trust Funds have been a major IDB-Japan partnership effort and contribution to the development of Latin America and the Caribbean. Resources from the Japanese Trust Funds have been consistently targeted to support small and low-income countries in the social sectors, the environment, infrastructure, and productive activities.
The IDB-managed Japanese Trust Funds include the following: (1) Japan Special Fund; (2) Japan Special Trust Fund for Consultancy Services; and (3) Japan Special Fund Poverty Reduction Program (JPO).
The Call for Proposals from Civil Society Organizations of Community-Based Development Projects is specifically related to the IDB-JPO’s Community Based Program. The IDB-JPO has a proven track record in implementing community-based development projects in a number of sectors, in numerous countries, and with many local community development organizations. Since 2001, the IDB-JPO has funded over 115 projects for approximately USD 30 million.
