The BESTLIFE2030 project will establish a financing facility to give support to applicants and grantees for enabling projects that will ensure impact on the ground and that will ultimately demonstrate the commitment of the EU Overseas towards regional and international biodiversity and sustainable development strategies. This project is coordinated by IUCN, an "assimilated international organisation" by a Commission decision C(2020) 7741. Across the relevant regions, the consortium will engage regional stakeholders with the required technical experience and knowledge in implementation and decision making to provide meaningful and active guidance to applicants and grantees. This support will materialise in concrete actions gravitating around the development of capacity of local actors and regional institutions, project monitoring, communication and visibility and capitalisation exercises to share best practices and knowledge management. The BESTLIFE2030 project will build a strategic framework so that the impact achieved by the awarded projects can inform and reinforce not only the local strategies in the EU Overseas, but also those at a national and EU level. The project will: - provide specific support to local stakeholders in ORs and OCTs for the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of ecosystem services, including for climate adaptation, as set out in the Commission Communication 'A stronger and renewed partnership with the EU's outermost regions; - empower local stakeholders in ORs and OCTs to define and implement projects tailored to their respective challenges and to address effectively concrete conservation issues; - stimulate the inclusion of conservation and the sustainable use of biological resources into decision-making, and mainstream issues across all sectors of local economies and policy-making frameworks; - contribute to the achievement of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework to be adopted at the CBD COP 15.
