News New call for proposals: Environment, sustainable management of Natural resources, including energy (EuropeAid/128320/C/ACT/Multi)

On 31 July 2009 was published a new call for proposals under the European Commission's external aid thematic programme: "Environment, Sustainable Management of Natural Resources, including energy (ENRTP)":

The deadline for submission of Concept Notes is 1 October 2009 and this restricted call for proposals is managed centrally by AIDCO/F/4 .
Please check lots since some lots are eligible for Jordan as ENPI, some lots are eligible for all countries, and some are eligible for non ENPI countries thus also Yemen.

Please note that questions can only be sent to an official e-mail address mentioned in the Guidelines for Grant Applicants.

For other funding opportunities, please consult EuropeAid's website:
(The above mentioned call for proposals can also be found under reference number 128320.)

All the documents referred to below can be consulted on EuropeAid's "Environment and Natural Resources" website at (Working documents)

In the context of this call, only three ENRTP Priorities will be open. Applications should be relevant to at least one of these three Priority areas of the Thematic Strategy ENRTP referred to below:

ENRTP Priority 1. Working upstream in assisting developing countries to achieve the MDG7 on environmental sustainability;

ENRTP Priority 2. Promoting implementation of EU initiatives and internationally agreed commitments;

ENRTP Priority 5. Support for sustainable energy options in partner countries and regions.

In each ENRTP Priority, one or several lots are open. It is brought to the attention of the applicants that the geographical coverage and the 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 is allowed. The evaluation of a Concept Note / Full Proposal will be done in relation to its relevance to the lot under which it was submitted.

Actions will be selected, inter alia, on the basis of their expected results and potential effectiveness. Each proposal must therefore have its own performance and success indicators, which must be objective and verifiable. Furthermore, in addition to environmental objectives, actions must clearly contribute to poverty alleviation, regardless of the lot under which they are submitted.

Priority in the selection procedure will be given to innovative actions and actions promoting global or inter-regional or regional or transboundary approaches (see section 2 below for the definition of "regional" and "global or inter-regional"). Cross-border collaboration or international collaboration will be considered as important criteria during the evaluation process.

Proposed actions should be consistent with the relevant EC Country and Regional Strategies and complementary (avoiding overlaps) to any other activities in the respective ENRTP priority areas of cooperation, which are taking place in the targeted regions.




Contact information Questions (except those related to registration in PADOR) may be sent by e-mail no later than 21 days before the deadline for the submission of Concept Notes to the address below, indicating clearly the reference of the Call for Proposals: (email: ;
