Deadline: 21 September 2019
The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) has opened the first call for proposals under the “Action component (AC)”, concerning medium grants in order to transform knowledge into actions.
BIOPAMA aims to improve the long-term conservation, sustainable use of natural resources and ecosystem services in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, in protected and conserved areas and surrounding communities. Protected and Conserved Areas and the landscapes within which they are located have indeed a central role to play in preserving the biodiversity and ecosystem services that the majority of rural communities depend on for sustainable livelihoods.
The overall indicative amount made available for the 2019 Medium Grant call for proposals is seven million two hundred thousand euros (7 200 000 EUR). The BIOPAMA AC Validating Committee reserves however the right to allocate more funds in order to award more Medium Grants.
Actions must take place in one or several ACP countries.
In order to be eligible for a BIOPAMA AC Grant, applicants must:
- be registered legal entities (e.g. a registered/incorporated company or organisation);
- be directly responsible for the preparation and management of the grant project; not acting as an intermediary;
- not be a beneficiary of a grant funded by the European Union (including EDF funds) for the same activities.
