By close of business on Friday 21st September, REEEP had received 577 initial project submissions in its 9th funding cycle.
“We’re really gratified at this huge interest,” notes Eva Oberender, Director of Programmes. “There’s been a really solid response for all of the thematic priorities and for each of the regions. The REEEP team, the Regional Steering Committees and a roster of independent experts are now carefully evaluating each of these submisssions.” The shortlist of those invited to submit full project proposals will be published on 11th October, 2012. Those final, full proposals will then be due by 9th November 2012.
In parallel to this two-stage process, proposals for replication and scale-up of earlier REEEP projects as well as proposals from governments, regulators and development financial institutions follow a one-stage process, with full proposals welcomed until 9th November 2012.
