Slovakia – Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Programme

In Slovakia, DSB is Donor Program Partner (DPP) for the Climate Change programme. Slovak program operator is the Ministry of Environment.

The programme seeks to achieve two outcomes:

Outcome 1

“Increased climate change resilience and responsiveness within targeted areas” will be supported by two calls for proposals for projects on action plans and measures for mitigation and adaptation implemented by local authorities in urban areas.

Moreover, the outcome will be supported by one call and one Small Grant Scheme (SGS) supporting awareness-raising on climate change (Call 3 and SGS). The SGS is particularly targeted towards primary and secondary schools.

The outcome will also be supported by a pre-defined project supporting measures, education activities and awareness-raising at the Climate change and environment education centre (Living Lab) in Dropie.

Outcome 2

“Enhanced ability of targeted ecosystems to adapt to climate change” will be supported by one call for proposals on restoration of degraded ecosystems (Call 4).

Calls for proposals (three calls in 2020)
