The purpose of the BIOPAMA STGA is to identify or update result-oriented priority actions for improved protected and conserved areas ‘management and governance, through new or updated quantified management and governance assessments and their associated enhancement plans.
STGAs will fund exclusively assessment for a maximum total value of ≤ EUR 20 000. The maximum duration of a project is 5 months but it can be shorter depending on the type of activities funded.

Only priorities identified by these decision-support tools will be eligible for funding for the calls to be organised in 2021.
