The European Commission has announced the launch of the first call for proposals for small technical grants of up to 50 000 and up to 100 000 EUR in the framework of the BIOPAMA Action Component.
The funding alert has been published on the BIOPAMA portal: https://action.biopama.org/small-technical-grants/. The call has been open since 16 December 2019. An indicative amount allocated to this call is of EUR 2 million for six regions (West Africa, Central Africa, Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, Caribbean, Pacific).
The BIOPMA Action Component is addressing priorities for action, supporting activities on the ground for strengthening the management effectiveness and governance of protected and conserved areas. By adopting a landscape approach, these actions will also contribute to enhancing the local livelihoods through sustainable use of the natural resources and ecosystem services, as well as increasing the resilience to the impacts of climate change.
