Blue Action Fund has announced a new open Call for Proposals. This call will focus on Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. In the case of transboundary projects, project components can also be carried out in Panama. The projects Blue Action Fund seeks to support should focus on establishing new Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) or expanding and enhancing management of existing ones as well as supporting sustainable livelihoods in coastal communities. With this call, Blue Action Fund expects to fund 4 to 6 projects, with a total volume of up to EUR 12 million. Concept notes are due by January 24th 2020, midnight (CET).

Please ensure that you carefully read Blue Action Fund’s Grant Procedures Manual and the Environmental and Social Management System which both provide detailed information about our funding objectives and requirements.

Blue Action will also offer an online Q&A session for organisations interested in applying. The session will take place on November 19 from 3:30 pm – 5 pm (CET). If you plan to participate, please send an email to Nina Maier at [email protected].
