Governance

AmplifyChange has an independent Technical Review Panel (TRP) and an independent Advisory Board who recommend and take funding decisions that the AmplifyChange team implements.

Our TRP consists of independent experts in sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), each with knowledge of the thematic priorities and experience of the geographic regions where we provide support. TRP members are responsible for reviewing applications, and recommending the best applications based on review criteria relevant to the purpose of the specific grant type.

The primary review criteria the TRP use to make funding recommendations are relevance of the proposed project, organisational capacity, sustainability and costs, and risks and mitigations.

Our Advisory Board consists of independent experts and donor representatives. The Board is responsible for guiding strategy, and for endorsing funding decisions based on the recommendations of the TRP. We are accountable to our Advisory Board for achieving our results and benchmarks.
