Climate change mitigated and vulnerability to climate change reduced
This Annex sets out the operational rules for the programme. The programme agreement is based on the MoUs, the concept note, and comments made by the FMC. Commitments, statements and guarantees, explicit as well as implicit, made in the concept note, are binding for the National Focal Point and the Programme Operator unless otherwise explicitly stipulated in the annexes to this programme agreement.
The Programme Operator is the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic. The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE), the Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning (DSB) and the Norwegian Environment Energy (NEA) are the Donor Programme Partners (DPPs).
The programme objective, “Climate change mitigated and vulnerability to climate change reduced”, shall be achieved through two outcomes:
- Outcome 1: “Increased climate change resilience and responsiveness within targeted areas” The outcome will be supported by way of two calls for proposals supporting projects on action plans and measures for mitigation and adaptation implemented by local authorities in urban areas (Call 1 under the EEA FM and call 2 under the Norwegian FM). Moreover, the outcome will be supported by way of one call and one Small Grant Scheme (SGS) supporting awareness-raising on climate change (Call 3 and SGS 1 under the Norwegian FM). The SGS is particularly targeted towards primary and secondary schools. Finally, the outcome will be supported by way of one pre-defined project supporting measures, education activities and awareness-raising at the Climate change and environment education centre (Living Lab) in Dropie under the EEA FM.
- Outcome 2: “Enhanced ability of targeted ecosystems to adapt to climate change” The outcome will be supported by way of one call for proposals on restoration of degraded ecosystems (Call 4) under the Norwegian FM.
A possible pre-defined project in the area of modernisation of spatial data infrastructure, with the participation of the Norwegian and Icelandic mapping authorities (Statens Kartverk and Landmælingar Islands) as donor project partners, shall be explored in the concept note phase.
€ 50,000 shall be allocated to the programme from the fund for bilateral relations. This does not prevent the Joint Committee for Bilateral Funds from allocating additional funds to the programme.
