The Confidence Building Early Response Mechanism (COBERM), a joint EU-UNDP initiative, is soliciting innovative project ideas from representatives of civil society, including registered local and international non-governmental organizations, foundations and academia that are in line with the following aims:
- Support innovative, grassroots initiatives with tangible impact on confidence building
- Contribute to further enhancement of an enabling environment conducive to peace, stability and human security
- Foster academic research and analysis in the sphere of confidence building and peace
The purpose of the call is to identify project ideas that propose increased and sustainable cooperation, with a demonstrable positive impact on the building of trust between societies affected by conflict, as well as on the attitudes and perceptions leading to confidence building and reconciliation.
