Due to the small number of project proposals received for ITTO’s Spring 2021 Project Cycle amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Expert Panel foreseen for February 2021 will not be convened and all proposals received by the deadline will automatically be forwarded to the Autumn 2021 Project Cycle to be reviewed Expert Panel scheduled in late June 2021.
In addition, ITTO is pleased to announce that consistent with Decision 4(LVI), a call is now open for Concept Notes and small projects under Funding Scenario 4 of the referenced decision. Proponents should carefully review Decision 4(LVI) prior to any submission and use the approved Concept Note template (see below) for the submission of concept notes. As indicated, small project proposals with an ITTO budget less than $150,000 and duration of less than 24 months are to be submitted following the format in the ITTO Manual for Project Formulation.
The electronic system for preparation and submission of Concept Notes is expected to be launched in January 2021. The link to access the system will be posted on this webpage in due course.
Submissions shall be received by the Secretariat by 16 April, 2021.
