Generously supported by Australia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, GHR Foundation, and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, the RSR-ADSP has to date channeled 141 million dollars in small grants to 384 activities in 109 countries. These small grant activities, funded through 20 rounds of calls for proposals, have been catalytic, supporting roughly 17 billion dollars in World Bank operational financing around the globe.
