FAO-EU FLEGT Programme

The FAO-EU FLEGT Programme launches a new call for concept notes in VPA countries

The FAO-EU FLEGT Programme is now accepting concept notes from government institutions, civil society, indigenous and tribal peoples, and private sector organizations in countries engaged in Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPAs) with the European Union. Grants up to USD 110 000 are available through the Programme to support ongoing VPA processes in targeted countries. 

Proposals will be selected in two phases: First, all eligible applicants are invited to submit concept notes before 15 September 2017; and second, only shortlisted applicants will be asked to submit full project proposals.

For specific guidance and requests for information, you can contact the Programme Officer in your region:
