We believe a vibrant civil society sector is a prerequisite for effective conservation.
Through small grants, we are supporting the growth of civil society in North and West Africa and the southern and eastern Mediterranean.
Complementing organisational development, our Small Grants Programme fosters the emergence of new and enterprising groups and initiatives.
“PPI OSCAN’s offers a unique combination of support for both innovative projects and organisational development. Addressing national priorities, we aim to replicate successful approaches, collaborate with government and contribute to global conservation.”

Programme de Petites Initiatives pour les Organisations de la Société Civile d’Afrique du Nord (PPI OSCAN) is a good example of how our small grants look beyond simply short-term support for project activities. Read about our inspirational partner Maher Mahjoub who co-ordinates the programme.
