Armenia’s in-Country Call for Proposal aims to support a higher-level objective of increasing transparency, accountability, and inclusive citizen participation, and to support effective collaboration between citizens and government institutions in addressing new development challenges such as climate action, post-pandemic recovery, and building a green and resilient economy.

Additionally, the in-country Call for Proposals aims to improve state and civil society capacities, knowledge and learning on the use of collaborative social accountability mechanisms in the sectors outlined in the national thematic descriptions.

The proposals can highlight a constructive effort from civil society organizations to work alongside local and central government institutions for resolving key development challenges in health services strengthening or climate action sectors and promote greater transparency and accountability in the government’s efforts focused on these challenges.

Utilize This Offer

Eligibility Criteria:
1. CSO projects with the following objectives:
a) Addressing critical governance and development challenges through social accountability processes that involve citizen feedback and participatory methodologies geared to helping governments and public-sector institutions address these challenges in the health services strengthening or climate action sectors;
b) Special emphasis is on problems that affect extreme poor and marginalized populations.
c) Strengthening civil society's capacities for social accountability by investing in CSOs' institutional strengthening and through mentoring of small, nascent CSOs by well-established, larger CSOs with a track record on social accountability in the health services strengthening or climate action sectors.
2. Proposals will have:
a) to demonstrate that they will use inclusive participation approaches to engage citizens, particularly marginalized and vulnerable groups, in generating systematic feedback and engaging them in collaborative problem-solving;
b) to link participatory mechanisms to ongoing initiatives led by public sector institutions at the local community, regional (marz), and national levels aimed at reforming governance in public security.
3. Proposed interventions may combine a target geographic area but must be clearly linked to:
a) public sector initiatives at higher levels (regional / marz or national), and
b) the possibility of scaling up such mechanisms to cover larger geographic areas.

The GPSA will prioritize proposals that
a) are implemented by CSOs' alliances or partnerships,
b) include on-granting from lead implementing CSO and CSO partners.

Key Themes:
(i) Climate Action;
(ii) Health System Strengthening.

Preference will be given to proposals that target regions / marzes outside of Yerevan.
