   Dear all,

   The  [1]SPAW-Regional  Activity Center and the [2]Reserve Naturelle de
   Saint-Martin (RNSM) are glad to share with you the news that the [3]BEST 2.0
   programme  portal  is  now  live.  Please explore the platform to find
   information useful for applying for a grant, including [4]the operational
   manual, explanations about [5]small (<100 000 Euros) and [6]medium (< 400
   000  Euros)  grants,  eligibility  criteria, application procedure and
   [7]frequently asked questions.

   The [8]BEST 2.0 grant programme is a funding facility, supported by the
   European  Commission,  for  sustainable  development, biodiversity and
   ecosystems  conservation  in the European Union Overseas Countries and
   In the Caribbean region, the programme is open to Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao,
   Saba, St-Eustatius, St-Maarten, Anguilla, Montserrat, Turks et Caicos,
   British Virgin islands, Cayman islands and Saint Barthelemy.
   Capitalizing on the BEST III initiative, the Best 2.0 programme will -
   amongst others - support implementing actions in the Key Biodiversity Areas
   identified through the participative Ecosystem profiles process led by the
   BEST knowledge hubs.

   Stay tuned as the first calls for proposals will be launched  in September,
   starting with the [9]Medium grants for the Caribbean region. The submission
   of proposals will be accepted through the portal*.

   This  is  the  first  step of the BEST 2.0 grant Programme, which will
   prioritize primarily the Small grants component. Therefore you can also get
   ready for the next BEST 2.0 Small grant Call ... that will be launched early
   2016 in our region!  

   The SPAW-RAC and the RNSM are in charge of the BEST 2.0 Caribbean Hub.
   Please get in touch with us for more information!
