In 2019, the Small Grants Fund will continue to focus on rapid response to deforestation early warning – converting near real-time deforestation or fire alerts into action. Specifically, successful Small Grants Fund applicants will clearly articulate how they plan to incorporate two datasets – the Global Land and Discovery (GLAD) weekly deforestation alerts and/or the VIIRs active fire alerts – into improved forest management, law enforcement and advocacy.

Project Eligibility

  • The Small Grants Fund seeks applications for projects that clearly demonstrate how the organization intends to use Global Forest Watch’s near real-time data (GLAD alerts and/or VIIRS active fires alerts) to enhance local responses to forest threats. Applicants are also encouraged to use additional GFW data as relevant, including other datasets on forest changes (such as the GLAD annual tree cover loss layer), land cover (such as the Intact Forest Landscapes layer), and land use (such as concessions data). Applications should clearly articulate who the project aims to influence and how project activities will lead to improved identification and response to deforestation. Projects may target one or more of the following actors:
    • Companies
    • Local or federal government agencies
    • Communities
    • Journalists
    • General public
  • Projects may employ one or more of the following approaches to influencing these actors:
    • Capacity building
    • Advocacy
    • Enforcement
    • Storytelling/journalism
