Clima East Project announces a new round of applications for its Expert facility
A new round of applications for Expert facility is open until Sunday 15 March 2015 !
Through this Expert Facility, eligible applicants from Partner Countries are able to request specific and dedicated short term expert support, as need arises, to assist in defined tasks that will contribute to achieving results on the ground in climate change policy and action. This support mechanism sits alongside other Clima East activities and aims to build on these and other sources of support to respond to specific needs in a timely manner.
In the light of the high interest in the Expert Facility and the expressed need to support cross-institutional collaboration in climate action, additional resources have been allocated by the European Union. The total budget available for approved activities under the Expert Facility is now increased from €1,000,000 to €2,044,480 with a maximum 50 expert mandays per application.
Who is eligible to apply?
In order to encourage and support cross-institutional collaboration in climate action, applications to Expert facility are now open to a broader public, including not only ministries but also other national or local authorities as well as civil society organisations. In this regard, applications may now be made under two different “tracks”, according to the nature of the applying stakeholders.
Regional applications – gathering stakeholders from different countries within a same project – are also very welcome.
How to apply?
Applications received later will only be processed at a later hence allowing for a later start of requested activities.
Guidance on eligibility for support and on the application and approval process is set out in the Expert Facility Application Guide downloadable from the following page both in English and Russian: http://www.climaeast.eu/expert-facility.
