The French Global Environment Facility (FFEM) is currently seeking applications for its “Small-Scaled Initiatives Program (SSIP)” in order to strengthen the contribution of civil society and the decentralised collectives of Western and Central Africa to the conservation of biodiversity and the fight against climate change.

The two aims of SSIP5 are to protect outstanding biodiversity and fight climate change using nature-based solutions. SSIP5 will consider how to bring about improvements to living standards for local populations.

Thematic Areas
