The EU-UNOPS Lives in Dignity (LiD) Grant Facility was founded in 2020 to efficiently and effectively channel funding to promote development-oriented approaches to new, recurrent and protracted displacement crises, focusing on early operational engagement. The flexible structure assures it is agile and responsive, reinforcing the humanitarian-development-peace nexus.
The LiD Grant Facility supports a needs-based approach to allow displacement-affected persons, including IDPs, to become productive members of their host communities and participate in furthering their common resilience, socio-economic growth and
development. IDPs and those at risk of becoming IDPs are supported in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Belize, Burkina Faso, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mali, Myanmar, Niger, Pakistan, Peru, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda.
