The Civil Society Support Programme (C.S.S.P.) in collaboration with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (M.N.R.E.), and Small Business Enterprise Center (S.B.E.C.) are calling for proposals for the Vaisigano Catchment Area.
The Call for Proposal seeks proposal from eligible households, community-based organisations, non-governmental organisations, and existing enterprises to implement ecosystem-based adaptation enterprise projects within the 31 villages of the Vaisigano Catchment Area.
Vaisigano Catchment Area is under the Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) Enterprise Development Component of the Government of Samoa and Green Climate Fund (G.C.F.) - Vaisigano Catchment Project.
A series of workshops that started yesterday are part of a new initiative, which has opened up under the G.C.F. Vaisgano Project where the opportunity will be given to families, individuals and businesses to submit proposals to access funding for their new business ideas.
M.N.R.E., which is the implementing agency for this component of the project, through C.S.S.P., will conduct workshops throughout the week to explain how to fill out the application forms, eligible business ideas, etc.
Workshops are held in 2 lots: morning & evening sessions.The evening workshops are to cater for people who work, so that they can attend after work.
