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.
