News from WISIONS posted on September 16th, 2014

Our 2014 SEPS call is still open for applications! On this occasion we are looking for project concepts that demonstrate how to apply (small-scale) renewable energy technologies to improve the productivity, environmental performance and social integration of food value chains. Additionally, we are also looking for exchange activities that can strengthen the capabilities of practitioners and local organizations working in the field of applied renewable energy technologies in food value chains. The deadline for the submission of applications is 29th October 2014, 3 pm GMT.Read moreMinimize

For a list of countries in Southern and South East Asia see the UN definition.

You can apply for project support if your project or exchange concept demonstrates how renewable energy technologies can be integrated into food value chains not only to minimise the negative environmental impacts (e.g. the contamination of soil and water), but also to improve the social and economic capital (e.g. greater employment opportunities) of the local population in Southern and South East Asia.
