EFN, with generous funding from the UPS Foundation, has launched a special grant opportunity focused on supporting communities in regaining ecological integrity and enhancing human well-being in deforested or degraded forest landscapes through Forest Landscape Restoration. Forest Landscape Restoration can bring back life to degraded (e.g. forest fires) or clear-cut areas (e.g. deforestation, extraction activities). When carefully planned, forest restoration activities can provide environmental services to the local community and develop new habitats in formerly bare areas. EFN is looking for organisations that will use this workshop opportunity to connect corridors, create buffer zones, improve degraded lands, restore watersheds, and expand forest cover while also allowing local stakeholders to connect with nature and become a vested part of a larger conservation program.
To be eligible for an EFN Reforestation Workshop Grant, an organisation must:
How to apply
- be a legally registered organisation in a WWF-US priority ecoregion.
- conduct reforestation/restoration activities in a WWF-US priority ecoregion (priority is given to local organisations conducting tree planting activities).
- include an active learning, practical skill component, or field-based learning activity that builds skills and knowledge for local stakeholders as part of the project activities.
- priority is given to local organisations that have not yet benefited from this opportunity.
Applications must be submitted online by the deadlines in March or December and complete all grant activities before August 31 of the year applied.
