The European Commission is calling for proposals to support civil society projects on the environment in developing countries under its Thematic Program for Environment and Sustainable Management of Natural Resources including Energy, or ENRTP.

The call will focus on themes that fall under two priority areas of the ENRTP thematic strategy referred to below:

  • ENRTP Priority 1: Climate change and sustainable energy

  • ENRTP Priority 2: Environment for development

In ENRTP Priority 1, only one theme or lot is open. For ENRTP Priority 2, two lots are open:

  • ENRTP Priority 1/Lot 1: Climate Change mitigation, in particular REDD

  • ENRTP Priority 2/Lot 2: Biodiversity

  • ENRTP Priority 2/Lot 3: Forest Governance and Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade (FLEGT)

The geographical coverage and minimum and maximum size of the grant vary from one lot to another. An application must therefore refer to one and only one of these lots and clearly indicate the number and title of the lot selected. Only one proposal per lot per applicant is allowed. The evaluation of a concept note or full application form (proposal) will be done in relation to its relevance to the specific lot under which it was submitted. Only concept notes that are fully consistent with, relevant and contributing to the objectives of the specific lot will be selected.

Deadline for proposals is on September 25, 2012. For more information click here.
