COBERM II: Call for project ideas
COBERM has been set up in May 2010, with the objective to address challenges to peace while contributing to overall conflict prevention processes. During its first phase, COBERM provided grants to civil society organizations and other institutions to carry out a large number of projects (62) that supported conflict affected communities in different ways, ranging from public diplomacy events, youth education initiatives, improved livelihood operations, joint cultural endeavors and peace journalism trainings and actions, among others. As a result, COBERM is viewed as a trusted and impartial partner.
The second phase of the COBERM programme is now launched, with duration of three years.
COBERM II aims to support opportunities for applying a people‐centric approach within and between conflict affected communities and build an enabling environment within the divided communities to strengthen respect for peace and stability.
COBERM is soliciting innovative project ideas from representatives of civil society, including local and international non‐governmental organizations and other institutions or associations, whose initiatives would fall under any of the following:
1) project ideas that propose a phase II of a currently/previously implemented project that have proved to show impact and can make use of innovative approaches that would benefit their overall intervention;
2) project ideas that are collaborative and demonstrate a clear innovation component (including development of IT applications, etc.)
NOTE: Completion deadline for the projects is 28 February 2015. Maximum budget: 150,000USD.
Please, note that by this deadline all activities will have to be completed, payments executed and the final report submitted to COBERM.
IMPORTANT: To ensure diversification of activities and implementers, the maximum cumulative funding received per organization from COBERM since May 2012 shall not exceed 300,000 USD.
IMPORTANT: We are now accepting project ideas until 30 April 2014, 18:00, South Caucasus time. No applications will be accepted after this deadline.
If you have a project idea, which contributes to COBERM objectives, please complete a standard Project Idea Submission Form (see in the right rail of this announcement) and submit it electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org
