Regional Grants (Cooperative Grants)

Regional grants of up to EUR 45,000 will be available for joint projects implemented jointly by at least two or three organisations from Belarus and Moldova, as well as other countries, in order to tackle common environmental issues in the region. These grants will support cooperation between CSOs, as well as dialogue between CSOs and authorities and businesses (on issues such as sustainable energy policy, clean energy, climate change, CO2 emissions reductions and pollution prevention).

Cooperation among CSOs will be supported in relation to river basins, national parks and mountain regions, or topics where CSOs share similar problems and difficulties and where cooperation or experience sharing could enable progress to be made.
