The European Commission (EC) is calling for proposals to support in-country civil society actors in conflict prevention, peace-building and crisis preparedness in the Americas.

The Conflict prevention, peace-building and crisis preparedness part of the Peace, Stability and Conflict Prevention Thematic Programme of NDICI aims to support measures and actions building and strengthening the capacity of the Union and its partners to prevent conflict, build peace and address pre-and post-crisis needs in close coordination with international, regional and sub-regional organisations, state and civil society actors. Actions on conflict prevention should consider the differentiated impacts of conflicts on women, girls, boys and men in all their diversity as well as their contribution to peacebuilding initiatives.

The global objective of this call for proposals is: to build and strengthen sustainable, in-country capacities for effective conflict management and peace-building and support (sub-)national and regional initiatives in countries affected by/or emerging from conflict or whose peace and stability is at risk.

The specific objective(s) of this call for proposals is to support civil society efforts to promote peace and stability through the promotion of access to reliable information and narratives in Colombia and Brazil.
