ICRI Grants Program 2012-2013, successful projects announced
About the ICRI Grants Program
The ICRI Grants Program is one of the objectives of the ICRI Secretariat under the Australia-Belize hosting (2012-2013); following on a similar initiative from the UK-Seychelles Secretariat in 2003-05.
The ICRI Grant funding provided small grants of up to AU$10,000 to fund projects in developing countries that resulted in better protection and management of coral reefs and related ecosystems.
ICRI Grants were targeted towards governments, non-government organisations (NGOs) and community groups running projects based in ODA-eligible countries (see ‘related documents’).
Successful applicants were required to enter into a funding deed with the ICRI Secretariat (via the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority), with specified terms and conditions. Projects must be completed by the 30 June 2013.
The ICRI Secretariat has announced that four projects have been successful in receiving funds under the 2012-13 ICRI Grants Program. The successful applicants are:
- Aleipata and Safata Marine Protected Area Trust Society Inc. - Samoa
- Kenya Marine and Fisheries Institute (KMFRI) - Kenya
- Kousapw Palikir Community Group – Federated States of Micronesia
- Nature conservation Egypt (NCE) - Egypt
A combined total of $32,651.65 in funding has been approved for these projects that focus on ICRI 'Call to Action' priority areas. Further details about the successful projects are described in the summary of ICRI Grant successful projects (PDF File).
All projects submitted were subjected to a rigorous selection process which involved assessment by a panel which included representatives of the ICRI Secretariat in Belize and Australia. The eligibility of all applications was assessed against criteria set out in the Applicant Guidelines.
Applicants have been notified in writing of the outcomes of their application.
