Pacific Island Marine Protected Area Projects: The Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs (EAP) announces a request for proposals from organizations interested and driven to develop and manage projects leading to the creation and implementation of more, effectively managed Marine Protected Areas (MPA) in the Pacific Islands region. The Pacific Islands region is marked by recent success and significant momentum in the creation of MPAs. MPAs are safe havens for marine resources and can serve as living laboratories that are crucial to scientific research and discoveries that benefit humankind. MPAs can also boost economic activity in the countries they are created in by increasing fish stocks’ sustainability and created new or improved opportunities for tourism. Pending availability of funding, EAP will allocate up to a total of $445,500 in FY15 Economic Support Funds for up to two grant projects. Projects are limited to Pacific Island countries eligible to receive Economic Support Funds: Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.
