Grant scheme for biodiversity in EU Overseas
Small grants for big impact
BESTLIFE2030 is a sub-granting facility targeting stakeholders of the EU’s Outermost Regions and associated Overseas Countries and Territories that aims to fund projects that will ensure impact on the ground and will ultimately demonstrate the commitment of the EU Overseas towards the successful implementation of regional and global biodiversity strategies.

The BESTLIFE2030 institutional partnership combines the expertise of several partners that are driven by nature conservation ideals and possess the required complementary technical expertise in grant management, project implementation and capacity development in the ORs and OCTs. In its role to enable on-the-ground capacity and achieve real-world impact in the field of biodiversity across the EU Overseas, coordinator IUCN EU Office is working alongside the following organisations to implement the BESTLIFE2030 project: on the one hand, the French Biodiversity Agency (OFB), IUCN National Committee of The Netherlands Foundation, IUCN French National Committee, and the Overseas Countries and Territories Association (OCTA) and the Conference of Presidents of the Outermost Regions, on the other hand.
