  • Sustainable agriculture: In this focus sector, the Foundation aims to participate in addressing the environmental, social and economic challenges involved in a sustainable agriculture that focuses on the needs of the world’s poorest populations. The projects fund are in areas where the environment is most degraded or under greatest threat, and where local populations are most at risk.
  • Sustainable fishing: In this focus sector, the Foundation funds sustainable fishing projects that closely link protection of fish stocks and conservation of ecosystems with protection of marine species and the well-being of local populations. The actions undertaken help the beneficiary families and future generations to ensure their own food security and to find new local income-generating activities.
  • Biodiversity conservation: In this focus sector, the Foundation funds terrestrial and marine biodiversity conservation projects (fauna and flora) that bring sustainable social, economic and environmental benefits, particularly for the poorest communities and that contribute to protecting threatened species.
  • Sustainable Technologies: In this focus sector, the Foundation provides particular support for the development of innovative technologies that the very poor can afford, and which improve their access to energy, to decent living conditions and to more environmentally-friendly means of production. Innovative technologies based on a sustainable development model can generate microenterprises within communities.

Funding Information

  • The funding requested is approximately € 50 000 per year, maximum.
  • The funding requested does not exceed 50% of the total project budget.
  • The duration of the grant requested from the Foundation is from two to four years.
