MedPAN’s Calls for small projects

Supporting Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) is at the heart of MedPAN’s mission.

To this end, the network has set up a small projects scheme that aims to help MPAs provide a sustainable protection of biodiversity, while ensuring the sustainable economic development of human based activities.

These small projects provide direct support to MPA managers for the implementation of concrete actions, which will improve management effectiveness, test pilot schemes or put in place tools that can be useful to other MPAs.

The Calls for Small Projects aim to reinforce MPA management. These Calls for Small Projects are open to organisations that are in charge of the management of a Mediterranean MPA, as well as other organisations (NGOs, private companies, scientific institutions, etc.) working with authorities that are responsible for the management of Mediterranean MPAs.

44 projects already supported!

From 2011 to 2017, seven Calls for Small Projects were launched and 30 projects were funded. Thanks to the last Calls for Small Projects that closed in the end of 2017, 14 new small projects are ongoing in 2018. More information on the 14 projects selected in 2018.
