A call for applications for the 2013-2014 cycle of the CMS Small Grant Programme was issued by the CMS Secretariat on early September 2013 (see attachment). The deadline for the submission of proposals was 30 November 2013.

By the deadline for submission, the Secretariat received 46 proposals. The evaluation process is now underway. Proponents will be notified of the results of the evaluation in due course and further information will be made available on this web page.

Call for Support the CMS Small Grants Programme 2013-2014 cycle

The SGP is not included in the core budget of the Convention and it depends exclusively on voluntary contributions. Thanks to a generous contribution from UNEP, at least €75,000 are available to support projects for the 2013-2014 funding round.

Additional donations are strongly encouraged. For more information contact Marco Barbieri (mbarbieri@cms.int), Scientific Adviser at the UNEP/CMS Secretariat.

Coordination with other Funding Programmes

In parallel to CMS, the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) launched its Small Grants Fund (SGF) 2013 for the Conservation of Migratory Waterbirds and their Habitats: http://www.unep-aewa.org/projects/small-grants.
