Crisis in Cyprus: Illegal bird trapping reaches disastrous levels

I would like to draw peoples attention to a great funding opportunity for those working in the developing world particularily in areas where development and conservation issues clash. The Shaikh Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa UN-HABITAT Award was established in 2007 by His Royal Highness Shaikh Khalifa in collaboration with UN-HABITAT to promote pro-poor housing and sustainable urban development. So if you work in -- Urban poverty reduction including job creation and local economic development; Development of innovative affordable housing supply systems including slum improvement, slum prevention, access to land, housing finance, real estate management and basic services; Urban environmental management including climate change mitigation and adaptation; Urban governance including de-centralization and the strengthening of local authorities; Gender equality and social inclusion including economic empowerment of women and the youth and their universal access to water, sanitation, health, education and political participation; Effective public-private partnerships in urban development with a focus on poverty reduction, it could be worth the effort of making a submission for the award.

Often solutions to housing, employment and social needs for instance around game reserve and National parks can be found through the empowerment of local people and their involvement in managment issues. Money or a lack is a key issue, thus have a look at the following link it just could help. Closing date for submission for the 3rd cycle of the award to be presented at the WUF6 in 2012 is June 30th.
