Call for Proposals: Designing the 2015 Global Climate Change Agreement

The European Commission (EC) has issued a call for proposals for ‘Designing the 2015 Global Climate Change Agreement’ under the Thematic Programme for Environment and Sustainable Management of Natural Resources including Energy (ENRTP). The programme helps developing countries and partner organisations to address environmental and natural resource management issues.

The global objective of this call for proposals is to support the negotiations under the ADP (Durban Platform for Enhanced Action). This will include arranging for dialogue, research and in-depth analysis. In addition, on the basis of this work and progress in the negotiations, the programme will develop a draft new international agreement, with explanatory memorandum and supporting papers on its key elements. This work must be carried out by organisations such as NGOs, think tanks or centres of academic excellence from a broad and representative range of countries, including major emerging economies, Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States. The outputs of this call for proposals will be used within an international negotiations forum.

The specific objective is the development of options on how the new agreement should address all elements of the ADP workstream on the 2015 Agreement, including mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology development and transfer, transparency of action and support and capacity building.

This is a restricted Call for Proposals. In the first instance, only Concept Notes must be submitted for evaluation. Thereafter, applicants whose Concept Notes have been pre-selected will be invited to submit a Full Application Form.
The deadline to submit applications is 22 December 2012. For more information, visit this link.
