Call for proposal to form an Action Group

Africa is going to be one of the regions most in need of innovative solutions for tackling water and Climate Change-related challenges. The successful interaction among relevant stakeholders from both Africa and Europe in water management is of principal importance when trying to generate, increase and exchange knowledge and innovation that address the demands for solutions that have noticeable and high impact.

This is why we now invite applications for the second set of demand-driven, problem-focused AfriAlliance Action Groups. Five Action Groups will be formed with the aim of reducing fragmentation in water and climate actions within Africa and between Africa and the European Union by bringing together relevant knowledge, expertise and solutions.  We invite you to create an Action Group of African and European peers for effective, problem-focused knowledge sharing. It will allow you to jointly demonstrate your innovative ideas, undertake pilot activities together, and share knowledge between stakeholders and networks, to effectively identify and address vulnerabilities.

The activities of the Action Group will need to focus on one aspect (sub-theme) from the following main themes:

  1. Human development and capacity development needs in water and climate actions
  2. Institutional capacity development needs in water and climate actions
  3. Rural and Agriculture settings
  4. Urban and industrial settings
  5. Coastal areas
  6. Transversal issues

Important documents (for preparatory purposes only)


Please note that we will only accept applications that are submitted via the online application form.  You can apply any time before the 11th of May 2018 17h00 (Central European Time).

If you have an idea around which you want to form an Action Group and are looking for partners, or if you are looking to join an Action Group proposal, you can place an announcement on the AfriAlliance Action Group Market Place.

  1. Congrats. for the initiative! Most certainly a seed for a greater contribution to improve the livelihood conditions in many countries. We would be interested in participating in action group 5 and 6, but certainly not leading them. Is it possible to contact with leading participants willing to team up with organizations or individuals like us? Application seems to be for those willing to lead one of the actions.

    Many thanks in advance
