Ramsar Small Grants Fund call for nominations 2009

Each year the Ramsar Small Grants Fund provides funding support of up to 40,000 Swiss francs (US$ 35,000) for a number of small projects for the conservation and wise use of wetlands. Parties from eligible developing countries are encouraged to submit proposals for the 2009 period, and NGOs and others may also apply if their proposals have the endorsement of the Ramsar Administrative Authorities (i.e., national focal points) in their countries.

The forms in English, French, and Spanish and the current OECD eligibility list can be found on the Ramsar web site. The last deadline for submission of proposals is 30 June 2009, but the deadline for sending draft proposals to receive advice from the Convention’s Senior Regional Advisors is 30 April 2009. The portfolio of 2008 project proposals that is presently being circulated amongst donor organizations seeking their direct support is also available.
