The project objective is to catalyze sustainable, long-term investment in globally significant conservation areas in Namibia and Gabon and enable scaling out of the Enduring Earth approach in additional countries, contributing to 30x30 goals.
Russell E. Train Fellowships support individuals pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree in conservation and related fields. Each year, WWF supports committed conservation leaders and scientists from target countries to receive financial support for their studies and research.
The Environmental and Social Impact Grant aims to provide competitive financial support to teams and institutions working in Kenya, Tanzania, and Madagascar focusing on enhancing capacities to address environmental and social impact assessment capacity building needs with an emphasis on local communities and local practitioners. Proposals should aim to provide capacity building to improve the practice, quality, and effectiveness of community groups, government, and non-governmental institutions to design and implement sustainable conservation and development initiatives, plans, and policies.
The competitive community-based Forest Restoration Grant aims to strengthen efforts of formerly funded local organizations with on-the-ground outcomes that connect previous work to efficiently and effectively deliver collaborative nature-based solutions to enhance long-term community forest restoration.
WWF’s Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund supports the testing of new ideas that have potential to reduce the vulnerability of wildlife to changes in climate through on-the-ground projects. Successes and lessons learned from these pilot projects provide useful guidance that move conservation beyond business-as-usual approaches and successful efforts can be replicated or taken to scale to help wildlife endure under conditions of rapid change. Projects piloted through this fund must meet the following criteria:
Address climate vulnerability of one or more target species through interventions that directly support those species or help communities adapt to change and thus reduce pressure on target species.
Be implemented in one year or less with plans to monitor results in following years.
Focus on on-the-ground project implementation of a project rather than research.
