Seagrass Mapping And Community-Based Programme: Request for Proposal

Project Overview

Malaysia sits in one of the best seagrass hotspots in the world and its importance (in combating climate change and its socio-economic benefits) is often overlooked. Currently, there are minimal conservation efforts for seagrass in Malaysia and low concerted effort on the seagrass research and community-based programme. Hence, seagrass meadows remain unprotected, except for those under the protection of the marine parks. Therefore, Yayasan PETRONAS would like to kick off this programme under Phase 1 in 2023 and appoint an experienced and credible Implementation Partner(s) to conduct seagrass mapping (research) and/or community-based programme at the proposed location for duration of 2 years. The scope of work will be elaborated in the Request for Proposal (RFP) in the next stage.
