We are happy to be able to inform you today that our friends from the Life Cycle Initiative are currently calling for applications for the 2017 LCA Award. As part of their flagship project “Global capability development” support is being provided to practical projects implementing Life Cycle approaches. This activity leverages support from LCA experts, and providers of LCA software and data to institute practical projects. Overall, many developing countries are expanding their LCA capacities, however, there is still a lack of LCA tools to advance the implementation. An LCA Award would allow the transfer of required tools and knowledge to good quality project proposals from these regions.
Overall aim of the 2017 LCA Award
- Strengthen capacities for putting life cycle thinking into effective practice in emerging and developing countries in targeted regions (Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia)
- Generate local Life Cycle knowledge and make it easily accessible
- Demonstrate the value of using Life Cycle Approaches in the context of a specific project
Deadline for application is the 29th of June! How to apply for the LCA Award and more information is available here.Tags: capacity building lca award Life Cycle Initiative
