The European Union released a new call for proposals under the "SWITCH-Asia and Central Asia II - Promoting Sustainable Consumption and Production" programme:

The specific objectives of this call for proposals are:

1. To promote sustainable production (development of less polluting and more resource efficient products, processes and services) and sustainable consumption patterns and behaviours in Asia and Central Asia, through an improved understanding and strengthened cooperation between Europe and Asia/Central Asia, notably by supporting SMEs and MSMEs in adopting SCP practices and getting access to finance, and by mobilizing the private sector, financial intermediaries, retailers, producers and consumer organisations and groups, along with relevant public sector authorities.

2. To create an enabling environment to strengthen the implementation of national SCP policies in target countries and assist stakeholders (government, private sector, citizens, civil society) in harvesting the benefits of Sustainable Consumption and Production.

Please note that the deadline for the submission of concept notes is 28 February 2019 at 12:00 (Brussels time).

An information session will be accessible on Thursday, 17 January, 15:00-17:00 (Myanmar time) via web-streaming at:
