Call for Proposals of Project
ACCOBAMS Call for Proposals for projects to be funded
under the Supplementary Conservation Fund
Taking into account Article IX, paragraph 3, of the Agreement, the Parties to ACCOBAMS decided to establish at their First Meeting (Monaco, 28 February – 2 March 2002) a Supplementary Conservation Fund (SCF) from voluntary contributions of Parties or from any other source. The objective was to increase the funds available for research projects, monitoring and training related to the conservation of cetaceans.
The SCF became operational at the Second Meeting of the Parties (Palma de Mallorca, Spain, 9-12 November 2004) and, since then, have played a significant role in supporting ACCOBAMS conservation initiatives in developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
Submissions of projects to be funded under the SCF are done through calls for proposals launched by the Secretariat, in consultation with the Bureau of the Parties.
