Call for proposals: Drin Day 2016

The CEPF funded Act4Drin project and the GEF/UNDP/GWP-Med project 'Enabling transboundary cooperation and integrated water resources management in the extended Drin River Basin' (GEF Drin Project) are joining forces to raise public awareness about the natural wealth and legacy of the Drin River Basin on the occasion of Drin Day 2016.

The 3rd edition of the Drin Day celebrations aiming to inspire collective actions towards protecting the Drin River Basin and its freshwater ecosystems is organized under the auspices of the Drin Coordinated Action on the 5th of May 2016.
In addition, to the Act4drin partner NGOs (BIOSFERA, EDEN, GREENHOME) who will organize wide-ranging celebrations dedicated to the Drin, four NGOs will be supported by the GEF Drin Project  to conduct event(s) for the Drin Day 2016!
You are invited to submit your application to receive support describing the events you wish to organize. An amount of $4,000 ($2,500 for labour costs & $1,500 for promotional/printing costs) is available as seed funding to support each selected organization. Up to four NGOs will be selected from the following Drin Riparians: Albania (2 NGOs), Kosovo (1 NGO) and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (1 NGO).
You are kindly invited to read carefully the attached guidelines and submit your proposal to the GWP-Med Secretariat by the 12th of April 2016. Successful applicants will be notified by the 13th of April 2016.
We look forward to having your organisation on board in this endeavour to directly approach citizens in an activity which will not only be beneficial to the environment but which will also support NGO and stakeholders consensus in knowing that we are all joining efforts and making a statement more or less at the same time throughout the Drin River Basin. Feel free to disseminate the call!
