Information on PADOR, new Registration Service at EuropeAid
PADOR (Potential Applicant Data On-Line Registration Service) is an online registration system
belonging to EuropeAid, the Cooperation Office of the European Union. The aim of PADOR is to
develop a database containing reliable information about organisations likely to participate in Calls for
Proposals, to improve EuropeAid’s knowledge of its partners and to enable organisations to do their
own online registrations. PADOR will contain administrative data, a profile of each organisation’s
development work, sectoral and geographical experience and uploaded receipts.
The service is scheduled to go live - on a trial basis - in the second quarter of 2007 (likely in
September 2007, TBC). Registration on PADOR will be accessible to all from the EuropeAid’s
website: http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/onlineservices/pador/index_en.htm
Some members of CONCORD FDR working group are involved in a testing phase of PADOR already
now. In September 2007, registration will be compulsory only for a limited number of call for proposals
(the guidelines should precise whether the registration is compulsory or not). In 2008, based on results
of the first phase, registration on PADOR could become compulsory for all calls and applicants with a
derogation procedure still available. Read the presentation of PADOR made at EuropeAid office on
17 April.


The calls for proposals coloured in red are still open.

PROGRESS - Establishment of 3-year partnerships with EU-level networks active in the field of
                                                                             th
combating social exclusion, discrimination. Deadlines for submission: July 30 , 2007
Call launched in the framework of the programme PROGRESS to support 3-year partnerships, in the field of
employment and equal opportunities. Non-governmental organisations have an important contribution to make
towards affecting and/or accompanying change in employment and social policies and legislation. Making a
difference requires a sustained, cohesive coalition capable of mobilising and analysing information, making that
information available to key actors and mobilising many sources of influence. Non-governmental organisations
are in a central position to influence policy in the European Community and in the Member states through their
national members. Influence is gained through the increased expertise and information which are important to
policy formulation and implementation. European networks have a key role to play in representing, promoting and
defending the rights and interests of their constituencies at Community level, by virtue of their position as the
European Community’s main contacts in the implementation of policies. The strength of European networks lies in
their capacity to gather and mobilise relevant members from different Member States into an open forum of
discussion or exchange of expertise and experience able to inform and influence policy-making, as well as
relaying EU action vis-à-vis network members. (…) In order to comply with the above-mentioned requirements,
the Commission publishes the present Call for proposals with a view to selecting – on the basis of a triennial
strategic plan – EU-level networks to work with the Commission and receive Community support on a stable and
regular basis for the period 2008-2010.

MALAWI: Farm Income Diversification Program 2007. Deadlines for submission: September 3 ,
2007
Objectives of the programme and priority issues for 2007-2010. The objective of this call for proposal is to
engage non state actors in the realisation of the FIDP objectives. Proposals are sought that contribute to one
or more activities under the following 4 areas; a) soil and water conservation b) production, c) marketing or d)
processing and storage. Proposals can deal with all areas (a-d) or concentrate on just one area. However, if for
example, a proposal simply focuses on one area such as production, then it must explain how this production will
be used, sold and/or stored. The following list is an example of the types of actions that can be propose under
each activity area (a-d). This list is indicative and is not exhaustive: a) Soil and water conservation b) Production
c) Marketing d) Processing and storage. It is important that proposals fully address and take into account
the following issues: a) The proposed actions and interventions should demonstrate an integrated approach
b) Proposed actions should be complementary to the already existing actions taking place in the country
(including those of the Government of Malawi funded by the European Commission and/or other donors).
Applicants must demonstrate in their applications that they are both aware of other actions and how they will
coordinate in order to create synergies and avoid duplication and contradictions. c) Linked to the point
above, proposals should, where relevant and possible, build on FIDP’s monitoring and evaluation system
(including data flows and indicators) as well as those of the GoM, that have been set up by the Government of
Malawi with all stakeholders. Details of the current M and E system for FIDP and the food security in Malawi can
be found on the EC Delegation to Malawi or on the FIDP website (http://www.delmwi.ec.europa.eu/ or

European Year of Intercultural Dialogue, through directly involving or otherwise reaching as many people as
possible, with particular attention being given to actions relating to civic education and learning to appreciate other

the particularities of each Member State. The bodies responsible for the coordination of the Year 2008 in the
Member States will be responsible for submitting projects to the European Commission for financial support. The
objectives of the Year 2008 cannot be achieved without the active intervention of all stakeholders at national,
