The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Action received 95 applications from private individuals to support up to 80 thousand Euros from the Environmental Fund for biodiversity management projects

The supported projects will be announced at the end of June and their budgets will be supported up to 85 percent with money from the Environmental Fund, which reserves 1.2 million Euros for “biodiversity management and strengthening of natural capital” projects.

The 95 applications submitted come from the private sector and include people who own land, whose projects can be supported at 80 percent, but in the case of environmental non-governmental organizations, support can reach 85 percent, all with the maximum limit 80 thousand Euros.

To receive support, they must submit projects that improve the conservation status of the territory they manage, valuing ecosystems, allowing territories to be visited without damaging spaces
