Closing Date: December 12,2012:
The EU FAO FLEGT programme will issue one call for proposals in the year 2012 and in 2013. Calls for proposals are opened to local stakeholders (government, civil society and private sector organizations). Each project is limited to a maximum of 100 000 EUR.
Projects selected through the call for proposals mechanism will support initiatives that improve forest governance as defined in a national programme, advance the FLEGT process or address one element of the EU FLEGT Action Plan.
The EU FAO FLEGT Programme is a four-year initiative that supports stakeholders in the enforcement of forest law, governance and trade exchanges. This support is provided to countries engaged in the negotiations or the implementation of a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) with the European Union – known as “VPA countries” within the framework of these guidelines – but also to wood-producing developing countries and/or those who are major players in wood products trade, which are known as “non-VPA countries”.
