Objectives

  • The global objective of this call for proposals is to enable CSOs to engage as actors of governance and development in Namibia.
  • The specific objective(s) of this call for proposals are twofold. The two lots in this Call have separate specific objectives (SOs). These are:
    • Lot 1 – “To improve governance of the national Community-Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) programme”
    • Lot 2 – “To improve the participation of CSOs in governance and development”
      • Under this lot 2 applicants must mainstream at least one of the priorities below in the proposed action:
        • Gender: CSOs play a critical role in reinforcing women’s role as actors of change. It is essential that efforts are made to ensure they have opportunities to participate in decision making processes. Therefore, proposed actions should particularly mainstream “gender” in the action design.
        • Youth: CSOs promote young people’s rights, facilitate their engagement in social, civic, political and economic life, and ensure their contribution to inclusive growth and sustainable development. Young people should also participate in democratic processes and assume leadership roles.
