Recovery of affected marine ecosystems and development of marine and coastal biodiversity
Opportunity type : Calls for Proposals
The conditions of ecosystems affected by 2006’s oil spill are improved and the marine and coastal biodiversity is developed. This result will be achieved through actions within NGOs and universities that include:
– Investments, in particular, the promotion of marine biodiversity through new artificial reefs which meet environmental criteria (taking into account that one successful artificial reef has already been built on the Lebanese coast).
– Equipment, in particular supplying the two marine reserves with missing needed equipment and/or infrastructure for better management.
– Studies, such as those needed for properly designing the above investments and equipment/ infrastructure, and/or any study that would help meeting the set objectives.
-Capacity building activities to actors directly concerned by the impact of these activities.
