Across Europe, centuries of use have resulted in many landscapes and seascapes that are ecologically degraded, fragmented, disconnected, missing key species and vulnerable to climate change.
The Endangered Landscapes & Seascapes Programme is working to demonstrate and deliver a vision for the future in which landscapes and seascapes:
Support viable populations of native species with the capacity for landscape-scale movement
Provide space for the natural functioning of ecological processes
Provide sustainable cultural, social and economic benefits to people
Are resilient to climate change
Open Call: Expressions of Interest for Seascape Restoration Grants
We now have a call open for Expressions of Interest for Seascape Restoration Grants. The dedicated seascapes funding will support projects that aim to restore degraded seascapes, making them richer in biodiversity and more resilient to climate change and other pressures. Grants of US$1.5 to 5 million will be awarded for five–year marine restoration projects, as well as medium-size grants of US$750K to 1.5 million for national organisations aiming to grow their expertise and ambition in seascape recovery. For details and to check your eligibility please read the guidance document. If you have an impactful and ambitious seascape restoration project submit your Expression of Interest using our online form by 22:59 GMT on the 30th April 2024.
