CEPF launches Call for Letters of Inquiry for Large Grants

Offered by World Bank, Conservation International and European Union

The East Melanesian Islands Biodiversity Hotspot covers the terrestrial portions of the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and the northern and western island region of Papua New Guinea. CEPF’s niche for investment in the region was formulated through a participatory process that engaged civil society, donors and government stakeholders throughout the region. The resulting investment strategy (2013-2021) is documented within the ecosystem profile, available in English. This investment strategy is comprised of a series of strategic directions, broken down into investment priorities outlining the types of activities that are eligible for CEPF funding.
