Embassy of Czech Republic in Phnom Penh Call for Proposals for Small Scale Projects

The Embassy of the Czech Republic is launching its annual call for proposals for the Small-Scale Projects (SSPs). These projects are directly managed by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Phnom Penh and complementary to the large multiple-year projects implemented by the Czech Development Agency (CzDA). SSPs represent important component of the Czech Republic´s Development Cooperation with Cambodia since 2006.

SSP projects should focus preferably on priority areas set by the Bilateral Development Cooperation Program 2018 - 2023: inclusive social development (health and education) and natural resources management (water and sanitation), or should be complementary to activities of the Czech Development Cooperation.

It is desirable that the implementer would cooperate with Czech subjects, e.g. purchase Czech products, use Czech know-how, and similar.

All projects shall follow the National Development Strategy of Cambodia, contribute to Sustainable Development Goals and promote gender equality and respect for the environment.

The majority of SSP funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including non-governmental organizations) and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations can be eligible for a contribution provided that they are working with local partners and on local projects. Similarly educational, health, social or cultural institutions may receive SSP funding provided that their projects are essentially local in nature.

In line with this, the total cost of salary/fee, subsistence allowance, accommodation, travel cost and eventual insurance and vaccination of the experts (personal and travel costs) must not exceed 25 % of the project´s total costs. The SSP budget also cannot include the payment of the implementer´s administrative costs.
