FUNDING: European Commission (EC)–Kenya Rural Development Program
The European Commission and the Government of Kenya invite proposals to address drought and other vulnerabilities of arid and semi-arid lands in northern Kenya. Grants will build programs and strategies for drought preparedness; livestock health and marketing; fodder development; water conservation; support to communities for contingency plans; and related capacity-building activities. Grants (in two lots) will range from €500 thousand to €2 million. The program is open to NGOs, public agencies, and local authorities in the EU and its candidate countries; countries of the EEA and ACP (including Kenya), and least-developed countries. International (inter-governmental) organizations are also eligible. Concept notes are due by 31 January 2012.
