Detailed description of project Back

A number of local authorities in the European Neighbourhood Policy Region have signed up to the Covenant of Mayors(CoM), which is a political initiative initiated by the European Commission and launched in 2008 aiming to bring together mayors and local authorities in a permanent network under the aegis of the European Commission. Towns and cities which sign up to the Covenant formally commit themselves, on a voluntary basis, to go beyond the targets set by the EU for reducing CO2 emissions, through the implementation of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs). The Regional Programme in the Neighbourhood for Sustainable Urban Demonstration Projects (SUDeP) is supporting the implementation of the SEAP’s amongst others through the financing of demonstration projects through a Call for Proposals.

The objective of this assignment is to on one hand provide assistance to the applicants in the design and development of high quality sustainable urban demonstration projects and on the other hand to assist the Evaluation Committee in the technical assessment of the concept notes and then the full proposals received under the call.
