The 2022 call for proposals for the ALiSEA small grant facility was launched on Thursday May 19, 2022, and closed one month later, on Tuesday June 21, 2022. Submissions, including the full application, the concept note, and a detailed budget, were focused on three topics:

  • Topic No1: Assess the impact and effect of public policy supporting agroecology and food systems at multiple levels. 
  • Topic No2: Test and support agroecology innovations (technical, social, economic, organizational and institutional). 
  • Topic No3: Evaluate the performance and impacts of agricultural and food systems of ALiSEA members’ field initiatives. 

An online regional information session took place on Friday 27th May, 2022, involving 35 ALiSEA members with a fruitful discussion with the interaction of clarification on the questions and answers.   

The ALiSEA network will launch two calls as part of the ASSET project, of which this is the first.  It is meant to help mapping initiatives on agroecology and safe food systems transitions within the ALiSEA network.

The intention is to strengthen ALiSEA members and their partners on three major topics in support of the agroecology transition in the Sub-Mekong Region. The goal is to strengthen partnerships between the ALiSEA members and encourage joint actions, reinforce members’ skills through building partnership with non-members, and broaden the network efforts of inclusiveness and representation, incorporating the full range of stakeholders in agriculture and food systems.
