Integrated marine and inland water management – applying for funding

Iceland, Liechstenstein and Norway support programmes on integrated marine and inland water management in Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Lithuania and Portugal through the EEA Grants.

Who can apply for funding?

Only entities registered in the five countries with this programme can apply. Specific criteria and target groups are defined in the call for proposals. These may include public institutes responsible for water management, other public bodies, research institutes and NGOs.

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.

One Norwegian public body is involved as donor programme partners (DPPs) in this programme area - the Norwegian Environment Agency is involved in Bulgaria, Estonia and Lithuania. The organisation play a strategic role in programme planning and implementation, and can assist Norwegian entities who wish to get involved as partners.
