HOW IT WORKS

AFD Calls for projects, Peru

A FOUR-STEP PROCESS:

  1. Read the page describing the call for projects in which you are interested
  2. Download the documents relating to the call for projects
  3. Prepare your application (by gathering the information and documents you must provide in order to apply)
  4. Apply by completing the application form and submitting your documents.

 
APPLY NOW! 

NB. Applicants must register on the platform to be able to apply for calls for projects.

Before completing the form, applicants should read carefully the eligibility criteria for the call for projects in question and gather all the requisite documents.

The application form can be accessed by clicking the “Apply” button on the page for each call for projects. Applicants may only submit one application for each open call for projects. They can amend their application at any time until the call for projects is closed.

The final version of an application is submitted automatically at the time a call for projects is closed. Applicants may amend their applications at any time while a call for projects is open. They should therefore ensure that any changes are made before the call for projects is closed. Applicants can view their application once a call for projects has closed, but will no longer be able to make any changes.
 

REVIEW OF PROJECTS

Panel members process and review applications once a call for projects has ended and in line with the schedule set out in the description. Applications are short-listed by the project partners, with the aim of removing those that are missing information or documents or do not fulfil the eligibility criteria clearly set out in the description of the call for projects. The short-listed applications are then submitted for review by the panel members.

Announcement of successful applicants:
Successful applicants will be notified directly by email. Applicants who do not hear back should assume that their application has not been successful. They may of course submit further applications when new calls for projects are issued.
