Biodiversity and ecosystem services – applying for funding

Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway support programmes on biodiversity and ecosystem services in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovenia.The programmes fund a portfolio of projects.

Who can apply for funding?

Only entities registered in the seven countries with this programme can apply. Specific criteria and target groups are defined in the call for proposals. These may include public and private sector organisations, community groups, research institutes, schools and educational establishments and NGOs active in nature conservation activities.

How can I get involved as a partner?

Pressing environmental issues do not stop at national borders. Pooling expertise helps tackle shared challenges. To strengthen cooperation and knowledge exchange, partnerships between entities in the donor and beneficiary countries in projects are encouraged. Funding is available to support networking and foster project partnerships.

The Norwegian Environment Agency  is the donor programme partner in this area in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Lithuania and Romania. The Agency plays a strategic role in programme planning and implementation, and can assist Norwegian entities who wish to get involved as partners.
