As part of the implementation of the Fisheries Committee for the Central West Gulf of Guinea’s (FCWC) 2021-2030 Strategic Action Plan, we are pleased to announce our partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature and its Resources (IUCN) for the implementation of a significant project.
The project, titled “Utilization of Marine Spatial Planning in the Gulf of Guinea for the Implementation of Payment for Ecosystem Services and Nature-Based Coastal Solutions,” has secured funding from the World Bank’s Global Environment Facility (GEF). This initiative aims to strengthen cooperation and transboundary management of coastal and marine resources and associated ecosystems in the FCWC region. The overarching goal is to enhance food security, resilience to climate change, and sustainable livelihoods.
To facilitate broader participation and ensure that interested parties have ample time to prepare their applications, we are extending the application deadline to 13 January 2024.
Please note that all applicants must be nationals of a member country of the FCWC.
This project, spanning a duration of three years from 2024 to 2026, presents an exciting opportunity for collaborative efforts toward the sustainable management of our marine and coastal resources.
We encourage all eligible organizations and individuals who meet the nationality criteria to take advantage of this extended deadline and submit their applications by the specified date.
