About the Organization

The BIOPAMA Action Component provides funding opportunities to address protected and conserved areas, sustainable use of biodiversity, natural resources priorities for actions on the ground in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP) countries.


The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) Programme is an initiative of the ACP Group of States financed by the European Union’s 11th European Development Fund (EDF). It is part of the EU Biodiversity for Life Flagship initiative (B4Life) which supports efforts to halt loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services and is jointly implemented by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC).

BIOPAMA aims to improve the long-term conservation, sustainable use of natural resources and ecosystem services in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, in protected and conserved areas and surrounding communities. Protected and Conserved Areas and the landscapes within which they are located have indeed a central role to play in preserving the biodiversity and ecosystem services that the majority of rural communities depend on for sustainable livelihoods.
