The first version of the action plan was developed 2017-2018 in collaboration with experts from universities, authorities, and environmental organizations of the region. Based on this plan, we launched a competition in 2019 and 2021, funding a total of 20 projects that were carried out by local organizations. The experiences gained were incorporated into the update of the action plan and the new call for proposals. This time, 3 NGOs from each country can hope for funding of their project proposals for conservation of the coastal wetlands.
