Description

1) Objective

The Ornithological Society of the Middle East (OSME) was formed in April 1978 as a successor to the Ornithological Society of Turkey and was expanded in 2001 to cover the Caucasus and Central Asia. Its aims are to collect, collate and publish ornithological data on birds of the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asia; and to assist environmental and conservation organisations and natural history societies concerned with ornithological studies and activities in the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asia. The Youth Development Fund aims to support Bird Camps and education projects across the region as long as they meet the following basic criteria. Project ideas must:

  • Focus on building and strengthening promising young birdwatchers and nature conservationists across the OSME region
  • Provide opportunities and ways to get international experience and develop personal networks
  • Promote the growth of youth groups and civil society within birdwatching and nature conservation

2) Eligibility

Project leaders must be based in the OSME region. Projects must be aimed at 16-25 year olds. Project applicants must be able to receive funds via bank transfer only.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asian republics (i.e. Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Russian Federation, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, West Bank and Gaza, Yemen).

4) Budget

Financial support usually in the region of £1,000-2,000.

5) Application

There is no formal application process, although a short project proposal will need to be submitted after initial discussions with the OSME Youth Development Officer. Their support for youth development projects in the OSME region is not just financial, but can also be about helping you develop your idea and putting you in contact with others. There is no application deadline but you should discuss any potential projects well in advance of the start date. Before contacting us, have a look at these videos and articles from previous projects.
