EbA Call for Proposals

  • Although our foundation was registered in 2018, our finances have been mostly managed by a parent company that gave birth to the foundation. Just recently we started managing and registering our finances under the foundation’s own account. Is this information enough to fulfill the requirement or is it completely necessary to have an external auditor audit our finances?

    The foundation will only be able to act as lead applicant if it can provide two years of audited statements in its own name.

  • Are audits required during the CBF 4th call projects, and if so, for budgeting purposes, how often are these to be undertaken (e.g. annually, at end of project)?

    CBF EbA grantees should budget for annual project audits.

  • Are island coalitions (5 NGO/CSOs with MoU) considered an acceptable project applicant?

    Consortia are welcome to apply. However, there should be a clearly defined lead agency, the “Applicant Organization”, as detailed in the concept note template. This agency, if successful, would be the responsible contract party.

  • Are land purchases eligible if it directly enhances the impact of the EbA process?

    The EbA Facility has the flexibility to consider land purchase as part of an EbA project. Like any capital investment, it would have to be well-justified and contribute to the EbA objectives and sustainability.
