The awards do this by:
- connecting organizations new to Darwin with partners who have experience of managing successful Darwin Projects; and/or
- supporting work to build new partnerships between applicant organizations
- A successful Partnership Project should lead to a Main Darwin Initiative project application.
Partnership Projects support activities which might previously have been supported under a Darwin scoping award.
The objective of the Darwin Initiative is to protect and enhance biodiversity and, in doing so, to contribute to sustainable development in developing countries.
- Applications for partnership projects must be to establish new partnerships and must not simply be to continue existing working relationships. Darwin Initiative would normally expect applications from partnerships involving around 2-4 organizations.
- Partnership Project lead applicants must also meet all of the following criteria:
- have recognized expertise in the sustainable use or conservation of biodiversity and/or development;
- have a proven track record of managing biodiversity-related and/or natural resource orientated development projects in partnership with local organizations
- can provide evidence of work which has had an impact on the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity and/or sustainable economic development
- can demonstrate that alternative funding – including financial support from their own organization – is not available to develop the Darwin project proposal in consultation with their partners. Partnership project funding should not be seen as an alternative to seeking matched funding from other sources.
- Partnership Project partners:
- must include at least one organization that has not previously received Darwin funding .
