7 S&T

8 1. Scientific and/or technological excellence Read Work Programme (topic) Read Guide for Applicants What will I do? How will I do it? How to present my IDEA as a good PROJECT

9 1. Scientific and/or technical quality 1.1 Concept and Objectives 1.2 Progress beyond the state-of-the-art 1.3 S/T Methodology and associated work plan

10 1.1 Concept and objectives Relevance to the topic addressed in the call Does your project meet the topic requirements? Concept of your project What are the main ideas that led you to the proposal? S&T objectives Achievable, measurable and verifiable

11 Work programme Environment (including climate change) Topic (WP2010) Area Intergrated resource management ENV Integrated management of water and other natural resources in Africa Integrated management of natural resources is a way to maintain ecosystems capacity to produce a broad range of goods and services considering African socio-economic conditions and institutional frames. The project should focus on building long-term lasting human and social capacity for integrated natural resource management. In this perspective the project is for developing new or adapting existent, concepts and operational framework for integrated and sustainable resources management in Africa, taking into account long-lasting changes, in particular climate changes. It should address biodiversity, water, soil, forest, landscapes and ecosystems integrity. Environmental externalities, as well as human use of the environment through settlements, agriculture and other uses, and consequent livelihoods have to be taken into account. These resource management tools should be applicable in a broad range of African environments in different geographical areas, landscapes or river basins. To this end, case studies for inter-comparisons among different situations should be made. The comparison entails the identification, exchange and transfer of information, local best expertise and practices, experience and technologies and innovative approaches, between African situations and between Africa and Europe where applicable. The local traditions, cultural norms and specific acceptance structures have to be fully taken into consideration. The work should complement and possibly build upon related activities carried out by actors with experience in Africa and it should also have a potential for application outside Africa. Any imported technology/practice should carefully be assessed for its environmental and micro- economic impacts and its potential for sustainable use by the local African communities. The project should also identify obstacles to local development modes based on local best practices and local resources also taking into account the African socio-economic and political context. It should also make some recommendations on how these obstacles could be removed. This requires a solid dissemination strategy. The aim is to achieve a fair level of participation for African countries in collaboration with their European partners. This will be considered in the evaluation. (Part of the call for Africa) Funding scheme: Collaborative Project (small- or medium scale focused research project) for specific cooperation actions (SICA) dedicated to international cooperation partner countries, up to one project will be retained for this topic. Expected Impact: Since the outcome of the project should be a tool-box for both integrated natural resources management that could be used in a variety of environmental and socio-economic conditions in Africa and assess potential future scenarios as well as proposed policies and programmes, the expected impact is a long-term integrated management of natural resources in line with sustainable development principles and a better capacity for assuring the economic and social well being at local and regional levels.

14 1.2 Progress beyond the state-of-the-art State-of-the-art Current state-of-the-art and its limitations Expected advance resulting from your project What can you do about it?

15 1.3 S/T methodology & associated work plan Overall strategy of the work plan WPs, contingency plan, other activities Timing of different WPs Gantt Chart Detailed work description Tables provided by EC, WPs, deliverables, milestones, personnel effort WPs interdependencies Pert diagram

16 What makes a good S&T proposal?

17 State of mind You ask the EC to fund your research You help the EU to solve its problems!

18 Line of reasoning Objectives Problem State of the art Work Packages Deliverables

19 Implementation

20 What is implementation? How do I manage a large international project? Who are the partners and what is their role? What do I need to have a succesfull project? What does the project cost?
