What is the PPI ?

Since its launch in 2006, the PPI has been supporting civil society organizations in Sub-Saharan African countries involved in biodiversity preservation while improving the livelihoods of local populations.

PPI is currently the only French cooperation tool that funds CSOs directly in developing countries for specific conservation initiatives.

Who are we ?


During the last 5 phases of the PPI from 2005 to 2021, 274 projects were implemented in 28 each different african countries. The FFEM and the MAVA Foundation have thus provided €11.5M, for an average €32,000 per 2 years-project.
