Proposals for action research must show the extent to which they will promote local practices and expertise for sustainable management of biodiversity. For this reason, they should focus on:

Preference will be given to projects that cannot be funded by traditional research channels (ANR, FP7 etc ..., which may be specified in the proposal), and that encourage support for local communities, while allowing an evaluation of the impact of these approaches in terms of biodiversity.
