Grant / procurement award procedure
The Caribbean OCTs Resilience, Sustainable Energy and Marine Biodiversity Programme (ReSEMBiD) is financed under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF) Caribbean OCT Regional Programme. The primary stakeholders are the 12 Caribbean OCTs:
The Prime Minister of Sint Maarten has been designated Regional Authorising Officer (RAO) for the 11th EDF Caribbean Regional Programme, and as such represents the 12 Caribbean OCTs vis-à-vis the EU. The RAO liaises with national authorities and other stakeholders of the Caribbean OCTs and plays a key role in information-sharing and knowledge management. Various stakeholders can be identified in the individual OCTs: governmental representatives, NGOs, focal points for the regional programme and departmental staff dealing with resilience, climate change adaptation, disaster preparedness, energy and biodiversity, research and/or educational institutes, gender groups, private sector.
The Programme will be implemented throughout the twelve Caribbean OCTs, though specific locations of the activities will be determined as formulation and implementation begin. The project team will be based at Sint Maarten and will be supported by Expertise France Headquarters in Paris, France.
The overall objective of the Programme is to support the sustainable human development efforts of the Caribbean OCTs. Operational objectives will be formulated further to a consultation process with the Caribbean OCTs, and will be based on the three component pillars of the Programme as signified below.
Expertise France aims to contribute to the sustainable human development of Caribbean OCTs. Building resilience to the effects of climate change, striving towards a low-carbon economy and protecting marine biodiversity will contribute to sustainable socio-economic development in the Region, including gender equality.
The largest part of the Action will be dedicated to the operationalization of the regional strategy through financial support to pilot actions. Topics and priorities which will be tackled though the different calls for proposals and calls for tenders will be determined during the phase of definition of the regional strategy.
The methodology from which the calls for proposals and calls for tenders process will be driven must be flexible enough to be adaptable to the specificities of the Action and of the context of each beneficiary. Combining a maximum of options in the way the calls of proposals and calls for tenders can be managed will also secure the process efficiency, maximizing the total of activities that can be implemented.
The aforementioned principles will be important considerations in the assessment of candidates’ suitability.
