The present call for proposals is part of a continuing series of such calls by Blue Action Fund, providing individual grants to selected NGO marine conservation projects in developing countries. To better support regional ocean governance structures and foster co-operation between NGOs, the call focuses on a limited number of countries.

South East Asia is a bio-cultural hotspot encompassing about 20 per cent of global plant, animal and marine species. However, the region’s diverse biological resources are currently threatened by many climatic and human-related factors.
