FLEGT Programme: Call for project proposals

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) has issued on 1 March 2013 a call for proposals for the second tranche of the European Union (EU)-supported programme on Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT).
The purpose of the programme is to support sustainable forest management in VPA countries- the countries that are negotiating or have concluded a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) with the European Union to ensure that only legally harvested timber is imported into the EU-  by investing in governance and capacity building to ensure the legality of forestry operations exporting timber to the EU.
The programme is available for countries that have completed or are in the process of negotiating a VPA with the EU, namely: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Ghana, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Liberia, Republic of Congo, Republic of Laos, Malaysia and Vietnam.
Calls for proposals are opened to local stakeholders (government, civil society and private sector organizations) who play a role in the VPA implementation. Each project is limited to a maximum funding of 100 000 EUR, with a minimum beneficiary contribution of 20 per cent of the total amount required to complete the project. Proposals must address at least one of the country-specific thematic priorities identified in collaboration with VPA countries
This is the second call for proposal of the programme, after the first one in 2012.
The deadline for proposals is 31 May 2013.

The VAP is a key part of the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade Support Program for African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (ACP-FLEGT Support Program)- a collaborative effort among the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the European Commission and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) to address forest law enforcement, governance and trade issues in ACP member countries.
