Grant Background: The Australia-India Indo-Pacific Oceans Initiative Partnership (AIIPOIP) helps shape maritime cooperation in the Indo-Pacific to support an open, inclusive, resilient, prosperous and rules-based maritime order. These grants are to support maritime projects which advance the goals of India’s Indo-Pacific Oceans Initiative (IPOI), especially the marine ecology pillar that is co-led by Australia.
The funding under this Partnership is available to partners to progress the IPOI initiative to a stage where more intergovernmental activities take place. This opportunity is set to catalyse ideas for the IPOI to pursue in future years by focusing on the maritime ecology pillar, on which Australia is the lead partner.
