The RRC-EA supports the implementation of wetland conservation projects through its Wetland Fund. The RRC-EA Wetland Fund is a grant program that provides complementary support to ongoing and planned national wetland initiatives as a contribution of participating Contracting Parties to the implementation of the Ramsar Convention. The program provides grants for research studies that can influence policy development and grants for national, subnational and site level measures related to wetland management, conservation and restoration. The RRC-EA Wetland Fund helps grantees gain the track record and experience in developing and implementing short term and small scale projects to prepare them for access to larger grants from donor organizations in the future.
