Measures towards Sustaining the BEST preparatory Action to promote the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in EU Outermost Regions and Overseas Countries and Territories

Aim of the project

The project aims to create a platform for sharing information on funding opportunities for projects aimed at conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services in the outermost regions and countries and European overseas territories. This platform will facilitate the exchange of information between donors (European Commission, member states, financial institutions, non-governmental organizations, and companies) and the promoters of the projects; at the same time will develop regional ecosystem profiles, which identify the most deprived areas of investment.
