The Caucasus Network for Sustainable Development of Mountain Regions (Sustainable Caucasus) in terms of the ongoing project Strengthening the Climate Adaptation Capacities in the South Caucasus (SCAC) is pleased to announce the call for proposals — to Support Organisational Development of the Caucasus Network for Sustainable Development of Mountain Regions (Sustainable Caucasus).

Sustainable Caucasus comprises a small team of people based in Baku (Azerbaijan), Tbilisi (Georgia), and Yerevan (Armenia), which is guided by a five-member Board. Five years after its inception, Sustainable Caucasus's management decided to address the capacity needs of the organisation, and to define ways of both meetings emerging challenges related to the implementation of its mission and building-up its organisational sustainability. Therefore, in June 2019, Sustainable Caucasus undertook an organisational self-assessment process, which revealed four organisational development priorities to be tackled in the coming years.

The purpose of the call is to support Sustainable Caucasus in tackling the objectives set to address the priorities identified and described in the Organisation Development Options and, therefore, within four LOTs to ensure:

1) Elaboration of the Vision and the Strategy of the organisation for the next 5-10 years (LOT1);
2) Revision and alignment of the Communication Strategy with the Vision and Strategy of Sustainable Caucasus (LOT2);
3) Support for the systematisation of fundraising efforts and formulation of a policy of Sustainable Caucasus to increase the effectiveness of the fundraising process (LOT 3); and
4) Support for the introduction of a Full Cost Recovery (FCR) model (LOT 4).
