Clima East Policy Project support is designed primarily for those involved in national policy-making activities addressing climate change in the Partner Countries, including the staff of executive bodies such as ministries and agencies, or technical units dealing with the generation and management of technical data used in policy-making and implementation (e.g. Green House Gas Inventory), but also legislative bodies (e.g. parliaments). Other stakeholders, such as the private sector, civil society organisations and academia, are also able to request support, but the request must have a clear and practical link to national policy-making.
