Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) -- Ecosystem Profile for the Mountains of Central Asia

CEPF is soliciting proposals from organizations or teams to prepare the ecosystem profile for the Mountains of Central Asia Biodiversity Hotspot. CEPF will make one award of US$300 thousand for a team to lead a process of stakeholder consultation in the region and produce multiple documents. The key countries for consultations are Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan -- although consultations are also to be conducted in China and Uzbekistan. The team will rely on desk studies for Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. CEPF will accept proposals from any qualified organization anywhere in the world, including NGOs, private consulting groups, and public and private universities. Government-owned enterprises and institutions are eligible subject to certain conditions about their independence, as explained in the announcement. The closing date for expressions of interest is 21 March 2016.
