The ASCOBANS Advisory Committee, which meets annually in March/April, will consider the proposals made available to its review and select those that are a priority for funding. Please note that only projects with a direct benefit for the conservation objectives of the Agreement can be supported. Projects covering more than one ASCOBANS Party will be favoured.
Please provide only summary information in the form. The Secretariat will request more detailed information for selected projects only. The purpose of this form is to assist in the review and approval of the project proposal by the Advisory Committee.
Proposals received by 15 July of each year will be made available to the Committee for their review. Funding applications received later will not be considered until the following year, unless they were called for specifically.
Funding of projects through ASCOBANS is dependent upon availability of funds. Since ASCOBANS is not a funding agency, there is no guarantee that funds will be available each year. Please also note that the maximum sum the Agreement will spend on any one project is 15,000 Euro. Also, there is no possibility for supporting long-term projects. ASCOBANS will not fund monitoring obligations of EU member states or Parties to international conventions.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Secretariat if you have any questions.
