Call For Proposal (Extension)

The year 2020 is being referred to as the ‘Super-Year for Nature’ with numerous important international events with respect to biodiversity. The UN General Assembly’s virtual “Nature Summit” just concluded few weeks ago.  The 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) which was due to happen this month is now postponed for 2021 due to the pandemic.  The CBD COP 15 will renew the “post-2020” biodiversity targets up until 2030, within a broader vision ’New Deal for Nature’ going beyond to 2050.

 

Many areas outside national protected area networks also contribute to the effective in-situ conservation of biodiversity. Appropriately recognizing, reporting and supporting such areas is increasingly important in the context of biodiversity loss and climate change. Parties to the CBD recognized early in the CBD’s Strategic Plan (2011-2020) that ‘other effective area-based conservation measures’ (OECMs) offer a significant opportunity to achieve this aim.

 

The Global Environment Facility - Small Grants Programme (GEF-SGP) implemented by UNDP in collaboration with the Royal Government of Bhutan has implemented “Restoring and managing Landscapes in Gamri Watershed”, Tashigang through the Community Development and Knowledge Management for the Satoyama Initiative (COMDEKS) from 2013-2015.  The COMDEKS promote sustainability and upscaling of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLs) conservation approach. The landscape and SEPLs approach were also used in the development of SGP’s country programmes strategy (CPS) for Operational Phase 6 (2016-2019) and Operational Phase 7 (2020-2023).

Accordingly, GEF-SGP, UNDP Bhutan would like to announce the "Call for Proposals" inviting Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) for the submission of innovative proposals to conduct national policy dialogue(s) regarding the sustainability and upscaling of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLs) conservation approach.

Background

The GEF-SGP UNDP implemented a community-based model of landscape management and participatory governance programme in partnership with the Royal Government of Bhutan to restore the resilience of ecosystems and sustain the landscape that communities depend upon. The project was implemented in Gamri Watershed in Tashigang (“Restoring and managing Landscapes in Gamri Watershed”) between 2013 to 2015. The programme, which was completed in 2016, focused on two components: (i) community development through small grant making, and (ii) knowledge management for capacity building, replication, and up-scaling.

Building on this experience, the primary focus of the third phase of the COMDEKS is to: (a) promote sustainable use of biodiversity and its integration into the management of land, forest, and water resources (COP decision XII/18); (b) provide further guidance on the concept of sustainability in food and agriculture with regard to biodiversity, and to promote and strengthen support for relevant information-sharing and technology transfer among Parties (COP decision XIII/3); and (c) institutionalize the SEPLs model as an effective area-based conservation measures (COP decision XIV/8).

 

The purpose of this funding is to enable CSOs to carry out the actions of the Project Component 1: Promoting institutional and financial sustainability of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS).

One of the primary deliverables for COMDEKS Phase 3 will include a series of national dialogues to be held during the period December 2020 – June 2021 with respect to the financial sustainability and institutionalization of SEPLS, and contribution to the Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework negotiations under the Convention on Biological Diversity.

On account of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the national dialogues may have to be undertaken in innovative ways through online or other appropriate national outreach mechanisms.

The main activities to be executed under this call are:

a)      conducting consultations, dialogue and awareness raising among key stakeholders on the community-based landscape management and participatory governance model to restore and sustain the resilience of ecosystems;

b)      assessment and identification of possible and favourable institutionalization/mainstreaming of the SEPLS model, including sustainable financing opportunities and mechanisms in place (from SGP’s past two landscapes namely Gamrichu Watershed and Lower Manas Basin); and

c)      policy dialogue among stakeholders (series of dialogues) to identify and develop the key follow up steps.

Eligibility:

Applicants must be a registered CSO operating in Bhutan with valid CSO registration certificate. A CSO can also partners with one or more academic / research institution or another CSO, forming a consortium, to apply for this initiative. The CSO and partners must have relevant experience and proven records in working with local communities in landscape ecosystem restoration, policy dialogue and participatory dialogue. CSO with dedicated and experienced team with strong environmental conservation background will be an added advantage.

 

CSOs/Institutions which are members of International Partnership for Satoyama Initiative (IPSI) are encouraged to apply.

Time Framework:

This call for proposals is opened from the date of this advertisement until December 07, 2020. Proponents are expected to submit full technical proposals indicating how they would implement the project as per the proposal template, reporting form and other materials shared by SGP Secretariat.
