CMS Small Grants Programme: 2012 Call for Applications

15 March 2012
- The CMS Secretariat is delighted
to announce a new call for proposals as part of the Small
Grants Programme (SGP) of the Convention. The Programme
has played a crucial role in conserving animals on the move
since its inception in 1994 by the fourth Conference of
the Parties. Projects in more than 30 countries have been
supported to date with a total volume exceeding € 1.2

The overall goal of the programme is to
strengthen the implementation of the Convention on Migratory
Species and to act as a catalyst for further action beyond
the project period. In the 2012-2014 triennium the SGP is
foreseen to disburse at least € 75,000 annually thanks
to a generous contribution by UNEP made at the Tenth Conference
of the Parties (November 2011, Bergen, Norway). CMS Parties
and other donors are strongly encouraged to provide financial
resources to further strengthen the support for grass-roots
funds where they are most needed.

A dedicated webpage has been created for
the SGP, where the SGP guidelines, application templates
and other relevant information is available (click here
