This objective should be achieved through an improved understanding and strengthened cooperation between Europe and Asia, and within Asia, notably by supporting Asian SMEs and consumers in adopting sustainable consumption and production practices and activities by getting access to finance, and by mobilizing the relevant stakeholders such as the private sector, financial intermediaries, retailers, producers and consumer organisations and groups, individual consumers along with relevant public sector authorities.

The overall indicative amount made available under this call for proposals is EUR 19.600.000. The Contracting Authority reserves the right not to award all available funds.
