Coming soon: New Call for Proposals on marine Nature-based Solutions
A new Call for Proposals focusing on marine Nature-based Solutions will be launched soon. MeerWissen supports partnerships of at least one African and one German research or scientific organization, based on a jointly submitted project proposal.
With this call MeerWissen seeks to explicitly contribute to the spirit and objectives of the UN Decade on Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
MeerWissen fosters a strong partnership through a Co-design process to ensure that projects are jointly setting priorities and that outcomes meet local needs and can be used by all partners as well as decision-makers. With this call we offer funding for a dedicated Co-design phase prior to finalization of full proposals for project implementation.
The partnership projects will be funded with up to EUR 360.000.
Marine Nature-based Solutions (NbS) play a significant role in climate adaptation, coastal protection and climate mitigation, but also food security as well as biodiversity conservation and for safeguarding the livelihoods of coastal populations.
The objective of this call for proposals is to improve the knowledge base for marine- and coastal NbS and to improve the use and uptake in national strategies and action plans.
Stay tuned for more upcoming announcements as we are preparing the Call and a dedicated information session.
