Up to US$50 thousand Direct Assistance in Sustainable Forestry from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
The FAO-EU FLEGT Programme supports governments and private sector organizations that contribute to the reduction of illegal logging and strengthen the trade of legal forest products. Projects can apply for project grants of up to US$50 thousand. Eligible countries from Africa, Asia, and Latin America are listed in the announcement. Projects are accepted on a rolling basis.
Submissions are received and registered by the Project Management Unit (PMU), and checked against the eligibility criteria defined in the guidelines for direct assistance requests. Eligible proposals will be evaluated and scored by the PMU and, depending on technical aspects of the proposal, by at least one additional FAO professional with expert knowledge of the country, organization or region concerned. The proposal will be sent for information and technical advice to the European Union Delegations of each country.
There are guidelines for direct assistance where there is a form that candidates will have to fill out with specific information. Please describe the problem addressed, explaining its context and causes. Confine the description to relevant forest-related policy, legislation, law enforcement and socioeconomic issues and explain how the project addresses the priorities of the FAO-EU FLEGT Programme, and the priorities of the forestry sector at the national level.
