Expression of interest: Cooperative grants, Belarus and Moldova

Announcement date: March 6, 2013
Submission deadline: March 18, 2013

The programme “Supporting Environmental Civil Society Organisations (SECTOR) in Belarus and Moldova” focuses on civil society organisations (CSOs) as important actors in the field of environmental protection. Offered in the framework of the SECTOR programme, cooperative grants are designed to facilitate international cooperation between CSOs from Belarus and Moldova and CSOs from neighbouring countries to promote sustainable development, environmental protection and democracy.

When the call for applications for cooperative grants is announced later in March 2013, applications will be accepted from a partnership of at least two environmental CSOs registered in Moldova and Belarus that promote environmental protection and sustainable development in those countries. The application, evaluation and selection processes will take place between March 2013 and June 2013. The implementation of selected projects is planned to begin in September 2013.

Before the call for applications for cooperative grants is announced, CSOs are invited to send the REC a profile that will assist applicants under the SECTOR cooperative grants programme in the identification of partners and the creation of working contacts for the preparation of full project proposals. The REC will collect the CSO profiles and create a searchable database of contacts and project topics that will be shared with all interested CSOs on request. In the event that many CSOs indicate an interest in meeting CSOs from the other country, the REC will organise an information exchange meeting.

To submit your profile, please fill in the form provided and submit by 17:00 on March 18, 2013,  to
