Posted by Jamal Fida Tuesday, January 10, 2012 0 comments
Closing Date: February 3,2012.

The ACP-EU Natural Disaster Risk Reduction (NDRR) Program is a partnership between the World Bank-managed Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the European Union and the ACP Group of States. The Program, funded by the European Union and managed by the GFDRR, aims to address prevention, mitigation and preparedness to natural hazards at regional, sub-regional, national and local levels in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. To accomplish this objective, the Program focuses on four priority areas: (i) mainstreaming of disaster risk reduction (DRR); (ii) risk identification and assessment; (iii) early warning systems and communication on DRR; and (iv) risk transfer and integration of DRR into post-disaster recovery. The current Call for Proposals aims at supporting Technical Assistance (TA) and Capacity Building Activities as well as Pilots/Demonstrative projects, under two established windows of the Program:
Window 1 which aims to strengthen regional/sub-regional cooperation to advance ACP countries’ national disaster risk reduction agendas.
Window 2 which aims to provide need-based and demand-driven technical assistance for DRR and climate adaptation policy development and its implementation including provision of technical advisory capacity in ACP countries.
Proposed activities may be directly executed by the World Bank (Bank executed) or by external partners (Recipient executed). All activities funded under this program will have to comply with the World Bank fiduciary policies.

For both windows, grant funding range from USD 250K to USD 1million.

Eligibility and Requirements:
Who can apply: World Bank, Government authorities (including local level governments), Regional Organizations, UN agencies, and Civil Society Organizations are eligible to submit a proposal on their own or in partnership with one another.
Coordination with the European Union: Proponents are required to coordinate with EU representatives in the Delegations or at HQ, to ensure their proposal’s complementarity with other EU-funded instruments and/or programs.
