The Digital Democracy Initiative (DDI) is a programme aimed at safeguarding inclusive democracy and human rights in the digital age. The DDI focuses on support to local civil society in the Global South, particularly in countries undergoing democratic regression and where civic space is under pressure.

The DDI programme is designed to facilitate scalability, both in terms of attracting additional donors and increasing the number of implementing partners during the implementation period 2023 to 2026. Through a Call for Proposals, the DDI will expand its support to Human Right Defenders and civil society activists in the Global South under three thematic lots:


  • Lot 1: Combatting technology facilitated gender-based violence
  • Lot 2: Leveraging digital technologies for climate activism
  • Lot 3: Strengthening youth engagement in the digital democratic space
