New call for proposals: Keeping nature at the heart of post-COVID recovery

The COVID-19 pandemic is bringing to light our broken relationship with nature. There are more voices in all spheres asking to “build back better”,to‘reset’the economy and to redirect our economic and financial systems to take better account of our natural capital, whose erosion is compromising the survival of many species, including human beings.

Thanks to this call for proposals, MAVA is seeking to support activities that strengthen nature conservation in the immediate recovery phase and the mid-term (re)construction phase of the COVID crisis.

MAVA is seeking innovative ideas to better promote nature in the (post)-COVID-19 world that is currently being shaped. As economic and financial systems are rebooted, we are aiming for ideas for actions in a broad range of areas and sectors that can translate into tangible impacts for nature and biodiversity conservation.
