3rd Call for Proposals on Nature-based Solutions
The MeerWissen initiative hosted a lively Information Session on the 20th of October regarding the recently launched 3rd Call for Proposals on Nature-based Solutions.
If you were unable to join this Info Session, please take a look at the recording on this webpage.
With this Info Session, we informed participants about the MeerWissen funding programme, the 3rd Call for Proposals on Nature-based Solutions and the guidelines for Co-designing joint marine research projects in a dedicated Co-design phase prior to project implementation.
With the partnership projects funded from this 3rd Call for Proposals MeerWissen seeks to contribute to discussions and ongoing policy developments aimed at strengthening marine Nature-based Solutions in African partner countries and to improve their use and uptake in national strategies and action plans.
MeerWissen is an initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) that seeks to provide policy-makers with the scientific information they need to take profound decisions for the effective management and conservation of Africa’s ocean and coasts.
With the 3rd Call for Proposals the MeerWissen Initiative seeks to support partnership projects between African and German research and scientific organisations, that contribute to strengthening the knowledge base for marine and coastal Nature-based Solutions in Africa.
This call has been developed as a contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021 – 2030 (‘the Ocean Decade’). Successful projects will be endorsed as Decade Actions and formally recognised as part of the Ocean Decade.
The event was jointly organised by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), which hosts the MeerWissen Secretariat.
