Expressions of Interest for MedFund (Round 2)
The MedFund is an environmental trust fund which aims to mobilize public and private actors to promote the development and effectiveness of marine protected areas (MPAs) in the Mediterranean.
The Fund provides financial support to the management and co-management structures of Mediterranean MPAs in order to sustainably contribute to covering the recurrent management costs of these protected areas.
Under the “Highly Protected Mediterranean Initiative“, The MedFund is launching in 2023 the second call for expressions of interest specifically dedicated to marine protected areas of strong protection.
The purpose of this call is to support:
- The start of management activities in newly created MPAs
- The strengthening of the management effectiveness of existing strong protection MPAs
- The extension of strong protection zones within MPAs.
The support granted by the MedFund will be on average 50 to 60k€ per year per MPA.
For the beneficiary MPAs, the financing agreements will be signed for a period of five years.
