Mubadarat supports North African civil society initiatives in the field of nature conservation and sustainable development.



The PPI-OSCAN programme

The small-scale initiatives programme for Civil Society Organizations in North Africa (PPI-OSCAN) is financed by the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM), the MAVA Foundation, and the Foundation Sigrid Rausing Trust. For 7 years, PPI-OSCAN supported 37 organizations in its first phase (2014–2017) and 43 in its second (2018–2021), and plans to support 11 historic organizations and some twenty others emerging during its third phase (2021–2024), through a call for projects in Morocco, Libya and Tunisia. The funded projects target conservation of the species and ecosystems presenting remarkable biodiversity, and promotion of the benefits of conservation and sustainable means of subsistence.

On the basis of two calls for projects, twelve organizations have received a grant to launch their initiative and join the IUCN-Med capacity-building programme.
