Register as a CCARDESA Expert

CCARDESA is developing a database of experts in the region to serve internal and external purposes of the organisation.

Internally, CCARDESA will soon start to operate a competive research grant system for awarding research funds to different organisations in the region. For this purpose  CCARDESA will establish a Technical Advisory Committe (TAC) whose duty will be to review proposals submitted and advise CARDESA on the technical quality of these proposals. The composition of the TAC will change depending on the nature of proposals being reviewed. Thus technical composition of the TAC will be determined by the skills mix requires at a particular time. 

Secondly, CCARDESA wishes to use the database of experts as a pool from which different consultants could be sourced and contacted directly for consultancy assignments.

From time to time, CCARDESA receives requests from regional and global organisations, asking for advice and recommendations for  various regional experts to provide a range of services. CCARDESA therefore intends to use the database for purposes of marketing the regional experts and connecting them to organisations that maybe interested in engaging them for various tasks.

In order to serve the internal and external needs of CCARDESA as briefly outlined above, the CCARDESA Secretariat is requesting for submission of CVs from regional experts, using a format provided below. Please strictly adhere to the following specifications:
