RESILAO project: applications now open for the first call for proposals

Call for proposals to promote sustainable coastal ecosystems under the RESILAO project.

The first call for proposals to promote sustainable, resilient coastal ecosystems and a social and inclusive blue economy under the RESILAO project is now open.

RESILAO is a regional project that aims to disseminate best practice and support local initiatives in order to promote the regional scale-up of successful conservation and/or development experiences. It is implemented by the Regional Partnership for Coastal and Marine Conservation in West Africa (PRCM) and receives financial support from the French Global Environment Facility (FFEM), the WACA/World Bank programme and other partners.

Under this first call for proposals, the PRCM aims to fund innovative local initiatives focusing on the resilience of coastal communities and ecosystems. The countries eligible for funding are Mauritania, Senegal, Cabo Verde and Guinea.

Selected projects must contribute to one or more of the RESIALO project's thematic areas. The projects selected will be eligible for funding of between €50,000 and €150,000, for an implementation period of between 18 and 24 months.

This call for proposals mainly concerns players or consortia of players with proven expertise and credibility in the fields of biodiversity conservation, ecosystem restoration and the blue and solidarity-based economy, and who have a legitimate presence in the areas concerned.

If you are an NGO, a professional association, a grassroots community organisation, a marine protected area management organisation, a research centre, a local authority or a private entity working in the field covered by this call, please send your application before 23 August 2023.

Please consult the eligibility conditions on the project website, where you can also download the call for proposals documents in French, English or Portuguese. Finally, submit your project online in the dedicated space by following the instructions provided.
