  • Preference will be given to those Concept Notes that
    • engage new actors, i.e. those who have not participated in peacebuilding initiatives in the past;
    • are cross-border, i.e. engage counterparts from across the sides of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict;

  • Non-profits and for-profits should be able to prove that they have:
    • Formal registration and availability of a bank account;
    • Sufficient administrative, financial and technical capacity to implement a project;
