FUNDING NEEDS IN PROPOSALS RELATED TO MARINE POLLUTION SOLUTIONS

Which amount of funding is made available and which amount of funding do organisations actually need ? Is there a mis-match ?
For which type of intervention do organisations need funding ? 

It is important to show which type of interventions are not covered sufficiently by the available funding.
Which are underfunded categories ?
Which actions can be developed as a business-model and which interventions should simply be defined as a 'cost' of solving the problem of pollution?

This is what we need to find out. 

We all work with passion, each in our own region and in various capacities, as researchers, educators, designing awareness campaigns, engaging in clean-ups, developing waste infrastructure and much more.
We know what we need to do to solve the waste problem, we are professionals and we are all part of the 'waste puzzle'.
We all hand in proposals for funding. This can be a frustrating process. It is time consuming, we experience multiple rejections, in short : it seems to be a challenge to get funded.
