The Rising from the Depths Network will be funding a variety of innovation projects in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and Madagascar. These projects will fill the knowledge gaps that currently limit the way Marine Cultural Heritage (MCH) contributes to social, cultural and economic sustainable growth in Eastern Africa. The network believes that MCH has an important, but so far unappreciated, role to play in the long term success of coast and marine development. We want to fund projects that communicate its significance from the bottom-up and top-down.

The second call for applications for projects will close at 5pm (UK time) on the 31st October 2019.
