Grants of up to $40,000 and in-kind support to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit and non-governmental organizations for environmental protection projects throughout the world. Funding is intended to support local forest conservation and management practices, conduct evidence-based advocacy and campaigning, and promote greater transparency in land-use decision-making.
The Global Forest Watch Small Grants Fund (SGF) seeks to build capacity of civil society organizations to effectively use GFW tools and data. Successful projects translate data into action, applying GFW to overcome challenges in protecting the world’s forests.
The scope of the 2021 Small Grants Fund focuses on three key themes:
The Small Grants Fund seeks applications for projects that clearly demonstrate how they will use the tools and data on GFW to achieve one of the three key objectives outlined above. Applicants are also strongly encouraged to use additional data on GFW or from other sources as relevant related to land cover, land use, carbon emissions, and forest change. Successful projects will be those that have a demonstrated commitment to forest monitoring, sustainable forest management and/or forest policy and can articulate how the addition of the tools and data on GFW will provide a value add to their existing work.
GrantWatch ID#: 151801
Depending on funding and project budget size, the number of projects selected can range from 8-15, with 12 being the average.
The Small Grants Fund awards organizations between $10,000 and $40,000 USD. Each grantee will be assigned a WRI staff member as an advisor, who will provide remote technical support and other assistance.
In addition to the financial support and technical assistance, SGF recipients become part of a network of organizations and receive benefits that extend beyond the lifetime of their grant. These include membership in the GFW Partnership, opportunities to connect with others in the GFW network, invitations to GFW events, opportunities to test and provide feedback on new GFW features, and the potential to be featured in blogs, social media, or other WRI communications materials.
Projects will run from August 2021 – July 2022.
