Workshops on Confronting Air Pollution at its Source - 0 views

  •  

    The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi (PAS New Delhi) seeks proposals for a project entitled "Workshops on Confronting Air Pollution at its Source." Through this project, a grantee will implement a series of workshops at the American Center for non-governmental organizations/actors who activities are contributing to the NCR's air quality problem, offering them guidance on how similar activities are conducted in the United States with considerably lower emissions of fine-particulate matter. After the three workshops are completed, the grantee will prepare a report for distribution to all participants at a final session in which the participants can also share any activities (and any results) arising from the workshops.

    The grantee should organize a total of three two-day workshops at the American Center in New Delhi. Each workshop should focus on one of the following themes - construction dust, crop rotation and vehicular movement (including road dust). Each workshop should have a minimum of 15 participants, and they should be selected based on their involvement in the activities that cause air pollution and who have leadership positions in their sectors, either de jure or de facto (e.g., large construction companies, head of farmer cooperatives, municipal agencies). The participants should be from the NCR region, except for the crop rotation workshop, which will be populated by agriculture sector leaders from Punjab and Haryana. The grantee will be responsible for recruiting and securing participation of American experts and resources persons - at least one for each workshop. PAS New Delhi will provide final approval of the American speakers.

Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions - 0 views

  •  
    The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR) program is a broad-based research program with the goal of understanding the behavior of atmospheric regions from the middle atmosphere upward through the thermosphere and ionosphere into the exosphere in terms of coupling, energetics, chemistry, and dynamics on regional and global scales. These processes are related to the sources of perturbations that propagate upward from the lower atmosphere as well as to solar radiation and particle inputs from above. The activities within this program combine observations from ground based and space based platforms, theory and modeling.

Building a Pakistani CVE Ecosystem - 0 views

  •  
    PAS Islamabad invites all eligible organizations (see Section C for Eligibility Requirements) to submit proposals for grants to effectively counter violent extremism with evidence-based research as specified in this NOFO. This year's CEO NOFO seeks to address a major challenge to creating and sustaining effective CVE programs in Pakistan: the gap between CVE research and analysis (R&A) and program design that includes a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) element. This NOFO seeks to minimize the gap by sponsoring reliable, high-quality community-focused R&A that directly informs CVE program design, especially in the underserved regions of Pakistan most susceptible to violent-extremist (VE) messaging and recruitment. To address the above identified gap, CVE practitioners will lead the R&A in order for it to translate into measurable programmatic goals and objectives, whilst also providing thematic oversight. CEO's NOFO is divided into two distinct but closely linked grant projects. This link between the two will be vital for project success. The first project calls for creating the Pakistan CVE Research Network, a larger and stronger cadre of Pakistani experts in CVE R&A and M&E as the launching platform for the second project.
