The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) and a consortium coordinated by IUCN NL and SAF/FJKM, as regional implementation team for the hotspot, are accepting letters of inquiry (LOIs) from nongovernmental organizations, community groups, Indigenous peoples’ organizations, women’s groups, private companies and other civil society organizations.

The new program will provide targeted funding to mobilize CSOs in implementing EbA.
