Promote and increase the public investment on projects focused on marine biodiversity conservation by 2 Million Euros
by Minister of Sea (Government)
The financial support to scientific research, protection and monitoring of the marine environment may contribute to the conservation of marine biodiversity, but given that marine ecosystems are less known, more complex and far away, and require much more investment, it is particularly important to develop specific financing lines that may support projects focused on marine biodiversity conservation.
