BirdLife International, including its Middle East office and the BirdLife Partners DOPPS/BirdLife Slovenia and LPO - Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux/BirdLife France, is providing the Regional Implementation Team (RIT) for the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) in the Mediterranean Hotspot.

The RIT raises awareness of CEPF; solicits grant applications and assists organizations to make applications; reviews applications; gives small grants and jointly makes decisions with CEPF on large grants; and monitors and evaluates progress with the investment strategy. The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) is a joint initiative of l’Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Conservation International (CI), the European Union, the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Government of Japan, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the World Bank. Additional support in the Mediterranean Basin is provided by the MAVA Foundation. A fundamental goal is to ensure civil society is engaged in biodiversity conservation. More information on CEPF can be found at www.cepf.net.
