UNEP/ICRI small-scale grants programme

Fabrice Dudenhofer

UNEP and ICRI are jointly launching a small grants programme to support the conservation and restoration of coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass. This joint initiative builds on the success of the first small grants programme from 2017: https://icriforum.org/icri-un-environment-small-grants-programme

Grants will be awarded to projects aimed at protecting and restoring coastal marine ecosystems, with a particular emphasis on payment for ecosystem services, ecosystem restoration, blue carbon, marine protected areas, locally managed marine areas and action on UNEP’s strategic pillars climate stability, living in harmony with nature and a pollution-free planet.

Grants are available to governments, NGOs and community groups, for projects implemented in developing countries, least developed countries and small island developing states. Proposals that implement UNEP guidelines and best practices will be view favourably.
