The 1st Call for Theme Proposals of the Programme to Support Non State Actors (PAANE) addressed to Non State Actors (NSAs) in Guinea-Bissau is now open.

The PAANE – “NôPintcha Pa Dizinvolvimentu” – is a financial instrument of the European Commission that allows and encourages more active participation of NSAs in the development process in Guinea-Bissau, building on a logic of improving their capacity and close monitoring.

The PAANE have two main axes. The first, “Institutional Support” will be implemented through the training of of the NSAs? staff and the second, “NSAs Financing Initiatives “, will include specific training on proposal writing, support in putting together applications, and monitoring NSAs in the implementation of projects that are funded. Thus, this 1st call for thematic proposals from PAANE directed to Guinean NSAs.

This present framework for call for proposals under PAANE is a result of hearings held with the NSAs of Guinea-Bissau, between June and October 2011, during which opinions were collected from about 150 organisations.
