Tuesday, December 15, 2020

The Third Round of applications to the Specific International Programme opened on 15 December 2020. Eligible Parties are invited to apply for projects that can range in size from USD50,000 to USD250,000. Applications are due by Thursday, 18 March 2021.

The Specific International Programme directly supports eligible Party governments in strengthening their capacity to implement the Minamata Convention. Please consult the application guidelines for the Third Round closely on how to prepare applications.

To support and clarify the development of the applications, the Secretariat held a webinar in four separate sessions in English, French and Spanish on 19 and 20 January 2021. In case of further doubts, Eligible Parties are invited to register to one-to-one Clinics on February 16 and 17 and schedule an appointment with a member of the Secretariat staff who will answer any questions via audio/videoconference.

The Third Round is made possible with generous donor contributions to the Specific Trust Fund from Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.

The Governing Board’s decision to launch the Third Round was taken at its fifth meeting in November 2020. To know more about the projects approved in previous rounds and the Governing Board, visit the Specific International Programme webpage.
