Call for Best Practice Projects



As part of the Post-Paris-Navigator (a project supported by the Austrian Development Agency), brainbows calls for Best Practice Projects with the Focus on Biomass & Waste to Energy.


The international process on climate change is strongly affecting societies and economies of industrialized countries but even more developing and emerging countries.  These countries play a crucial role in the implementation of the UN Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Companies and organisations can make a significant contribution with their technologies and know-how, to realise sustainable projects there.

Therefore brainbows works with the support of ADA and together with the Austrian Economic Chambers (WKO AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA) on the Post-Paris-Navigator, to identify and to match relevant actors and to facilitate successful entries into new markets for companies. Another part of this project is to prepare and deliver information about the global climate change process and about success factors of best practice projects. The overall goal is to establish an active community for networking, to share know-how and experiences, to speed up project implementations. 


If you are active in the implementation of sustainable projects in developing and emerging countries and if you would like to present them to an international audience, take the chance and participate on this call which is focussing on Biomass and Waste (to Energy). The SDGs (UN Sustainable Development Goals) will also be taken into account. From the projects provided success factors will be identified and summarized in a white paper. This aims to share successful projects and to take influence on the adaptation of framework conditions.

The most outstanding projects will be involved (via Social Media, the Website or on a Side Event) in the next climate conference R20 AUSTRIAN WORLD SUMMIT, on May 15th in Vienna, with the participation of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen, amongst others. 

Make people aware of your project! Show and share your successes and learn from other pioneering projects! It´s possible to participate with more than one project (at any stage) and don´t hesitate to share this call for a greater coverage.
