Recommended projects

Due to the limited funding currently available and the large number of proposals, only about 10% of the projects proposed to the OAD have been funded thus far.

In 2013, twenty-three projects (to be implemented in 2014) were selected for funding. Those proposals that were considered of high enough quality but which could not be funded were placed onto a wish list, which is summarized in a map on the OAD website. We appeal to you for advice and assistance so that the OAD can find the resources necessary to make these projects happen.
