These projects are complementary to the large multiple-year projects implemented by the Czech Development Agency (CzDA) and are important component of the Czech Republic Development Cooperation.

The projects should preferably target in the sectors of Agriculture, Renewable Energy, Water Supply and Satination Systems to support sustainable economic growth and sustainable management of natural resources.

Funding provided by the Czech Republic for each project ranges between 200 000 CZK (approx. 8 000 EUR) to maximum limit 500 000 CZK (approx. 20 000 EUR). Grants are paid in convertible marks on the basis of the amount stated in the CZK form and according to the course used by the Embassy at the time of grant disbursement. Therefore, the applicant must take into account that the amount can be slightly different from the amount given in the application form.

Co-funding from the applicant or other sources is most welcomed. Overhead costs are to be covered by the applicant. Total sum of personal and travel costs, eventually insurance, vaccination and alike must not exceed 25% of total budget of the project.
