Myno

26 August 2016

MRLG organized the second Innovation Fund (IF) Project Preparation and Coordination Workshop on 22-23 August 2016 for shortlisted proponents in Hanoi, Viet Nam.

The workshop brought together 39 participants from 15 shortlisted concept notes submitted to the 2nd Call for IF Proposals. The workshop provided orientation on all MRLG project activities across the Mekong countries. Furthermore it gave proponents specific guidance on MRLG grant requirements and conducted a one-on-one preparation sessions to revise concept notes and start preparations for the activity design and full proposal writing.

A mapping activity of the 51 activities MRLG are funding and supporting provided an opportunity to specifically see linkages and share common goals across different country and thematic levels, consolidating where possible plans of action. The workshop provided a venue for the participants to network with one another and plan initial coordination mechanisms at the country and regional levels for shared knowledge development. Participants had a chance to explore amongst themselves how lessons and experiences will be shared and how each project can contribute to an ongoing learning cycle.

The training sessions provided during the 2-day workshop are expected to help the proponents enhance their proposals and in particular complement each other’s work where possible.

The deadline for the submission of the Detailed Activity and Budget Plan for 2 Phase Projects is due on the 26th September and the Full Proposal for Small Grant Projects is due on the 30th September. MRLG is targeting to start awarding grants by the end of October 2016.
