The European Commission has launched a call for proposals for regional actions under the Neighbourhood Civil Society Facility, aimed at the European Neighbourhood partner countries, east and south. The publication reference of the call for proposal is EuropeAid/135811/DH/ACT/Multi.
The overall objective of the call for proposals is to support active and inclusive civil society organisations, which contribute to the social and economic development of partner countries. The specific objective is to strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations from the European Neighbourhood partner countries allowing them to improve their engagement in policy-making processes and policy dialogue, their role as watchdog and monitoring players, and their representativeness and links with their constituencies.
The overall budget available under this Call for Proposals is €9,900,000, devided into three lots. The request for grants must be of minimum 500,000 and maximum 1 milion euros. As regards partnership conditions, the projects must include organisations from at least three eligible countries (EU member states or Neighbourhood partner countries), of which at least two different Neighbourhood countries covered by the lot.
The deadline for submission of concept notes is 4th of June 2014.
