US Department of State: Safeguarding Critical Resources and National Sovereignty

The US Department of States Global Engagement Center (GEC) seeks proposals from interested organizations to write a report which:

  1. identifies critical resource markets where the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is using disinformation, misinformation, or propaganda to undermine transparent, rule-based commercial efforts;
  2. exposes how the PRC is conducting its disinformation efforts in these sectors; and
  3. proposes recommendations regarding how to best combat these efforts.

The report should include case studies that compare and contrast specific investments by allies and adversaries intended to strengthen good critical resource governance, protect sovereignty of resources, and offer long-term benefits to local communities. Case studies are not limited by geography or income but should include countries involved in upstream or midstream critical resource supply chains and which are targeted by—or at risk of being targeted by—PRC disinformation/misinformation campaigns.


Up to USD $350,000 (approx. AUD $447,000).
