Autonomy and independence of the trust

SeyCCAT must be established as non-governmental in nature, with its autonomy and independence to effectively manage the funds. It participates in increasing the investor confidence.

We should not be seen as another arm of the government, but have a financial and decision-making autonomy, while considering government as a key partner. One of the reasons is that donors have certain internal policies, preventing them to fund government directly. 

We are transparency in law, which foster good governance and transparent decision-making processes with all stakeholders and partners involved. 

  • Board with good representativity
  • Capacity building for eligible projects applicants to access the funds

The ability to work without interference from either government or private donors, other than what was agreed at inception, provides the organisation the independence and autonomy to act in the best interest of the marine environment.
