What is the AEWA Small Grants Fund?
The AEWA Small Grants Fund (SGF) is a source of financial support aimed at supporting and promoting the implementation of the Agreement in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. It has so far focused exclusively on the African region. Since its launch in 2010, the Fund has benefited both governmental and non-governmental organizations for conducting a wide range of waterbird conservation activities, for example, in the areas of species and habitat conservation, training and awareness-raising for different target groups, survey and monitoring of species and sites, and livelihood related activities.
Due to the present unavailability of funding, there is currently no call for proposals in the framework of the AEWA Small Grants Fund. Funding opportunities, when available, will be posted on the AEWA website.
18 projects from 17 African countries (Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritania, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda and Zimbabwe) have so far been funded under the AEWA Small Grants Fund.
