Applications Open for Environment’s Tropical Rainforests Programme in UK

Deadline: 1 June 2019

The Waterloo Foundation is accepting applications for its Environment fund under the theme “Tropical Rainforests Programme” to protect tropical rainforests for their value to the climate, communities and biodiversity, principally through avoided deforestation.

Project Criteria

    • Applications for practical local projects that they will consider would typically be working on a specified tropical rainforest area, defined in hectares. They will generally only accept applications for the protection of areas larger than 10,000 hectares. Applicants will need to demonstrate how their project involves:

      • Management of the specified area
      • Methods to measure and monitor the protected area
      • Sustainable livelihoods for forest-dependent communities
  • Strategic projects
    • They will consider applications for strategic projects that are working on addressing the drivers of deforestation on a wider or international scale. These could include:
      • Working on international or regional forest policy
      • Campaigning for improved practices in commerce
      • Innovative ways of reducing deforestation e.g. financial systems or solutions based on the value of forest ecosystem services
