Eligibility Criteria

The eligibility criteria we go by are based on the projects which are submitted to Planet Action. Planet Action supports projects involved at least in one of the following domains:

  • Awareness
  • Human issues
  • Biodiversity and conservation
  • Drought and desertification
  • Forest and deforestation
  • Ice & snow cover
  • Oceans and coastlines
  • Water resources

To be eligible for support from Planet Action, projects must:

  • assess climate change related issues and propose a course of actions;
  • deal with at least one of the Planet Action domains;
  • have a member who resides in the country where the project takes place (at least for the project duration);
  • be proposed by a non-profit organization such as a NGO, a public laboratory or a university (Business organizations do not qualify for direct support);
  • confirm that the project has no commercial objective;
  • confirm that the project has no religious or ideological content or objective.

Additional criteria will be considered, such as:

  • the importance and usefulness of the project for local populations;
  • a focus on building awareness, information, training or outreach activities that will result from the project;
  • specific methodologies supported by staff members or associated teams with an appropriate background for the work proposed.

Last but not least, the project "size"

A typical Planet Action project may require 5 to 10 satellite images - which may be provided either at once, or at different periods of time, as requested.

If your project meets these criteria, you may want to submit it on-line, after reading the guidelines for doing so:
