Project Proposal

The period for accepting proposals for the 2019 Latin America CAPE work programme has closed and we are now executing projects as per our confirmed Planned Projects for 2019.

In the second half of the year, the CAPE team will start our planning round for 2020. Closer to this time we will add information to our website to inform those considering submitting proposals for our 2020 Latin America CAPE work programme, taking into account alignment of the CAPE’s objectives.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the proposal process, please contact the team at:
