EU Call for Proposals: Effective Awareness and Advocacy on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Programme in Jordan

Deadline: 7 March 2018

The European Union (EU) is seeking proposals from eligible organizations for its program entitled “Effective awareness and advocacy on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Programme in Jordan (REEE)”.

The global objective of this call for proposals is to contribute to the development and implementation of effective awareness and communication campaigns as well as lobbying activities for the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives to allow Jordan reaching its REEE targets for 2020. It would also empower the role of CSOs in advocating for green economy development, notably REEE initiatives.

Objectives

  • To assess in the local communities in North, Middle and South Jordan:
    • the general knowledge of REEE related policies and technologies, its impact and potential benefits
    • the awareness on the REEE initiatives adopted at policy making level by national and local authorities
  • To draft detailed advocacy and awareness plans with clear implementation activities, milestones, development schemes, monitoring and evaluation plans. These should tackle the role and responsibilities of all stakeholders including policy makers.
  • To achieve full scale implementation of activities in the locations specified in these Guidelines, to raise awareness of local communities in REEE, to induce behaviour changes on adoption of best available REEE practices among all community and policy makers segments leading to reflecting REEE themes in the decision making process and application in development sectors. Post-Implementation Monitoring and Evaluation is a must, and should be reflected in an institutional policy dialogue process with the sector’s decision makers at different levels.

Size of Grants

Any grant requested under this call for proposals must fall between EUR 150,000.00 and EUR 250,000.00.
