The French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement – AFD) is willing to finance a consortium of International and National Iraqi Civil Society Organizations or other Non Profit Organizations (CSO/NPO) to implement a project to contribute to the agricultural and rural economy recovery in Nineveh governorate in Iraq, with a more specific – but not exclusive – focus on Al-Hamdaniya district (see the Terms of Reference (ToR) in Section I). AFD has earmarked a maximum of EUR 10 million to fund one single project, with a duration of minimum 24/36 months.
The project will be selected based on a project concept note (see template in Section III), to be provided together with an administrative file (Section IV) and information sheets (Sections V and VI), to be submitted electronically at the latest by 12 pm, Paris time, on 3 September 2018. Late proposals will be rejected.
The selected consortium of CSOs/NPOs will be then invited to complete their appraisal processes, working closely with the AFD Project team, and submit a final comprehensive project note. This final note must include any points arising from the discussions with AFD thus allowing the Project Manager to present the projects to AFD’s governing bodies.
The documents of the call for proposals will be available from 15 June 2018 on the AFD website: https://afd.dgmarket.com/tender/22381200
