Deadline: 1 December 2018
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is currently accepting applications for its Reforestation Grants program to support communities in regaining ecological integrity and enhancing human wellbeing in deforested and degraded landscapes through forest restoration.
EFN is looking for organizations 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.
WWF’s work has evolved from saving species and landscapes to addressing the larger global threats and forces that impact them. Recognizing that the problems facing their planet are increasingly more complex and urgent, they have refined the way in which they work around an ambitious new strategy. WWF new strategy puts people at the center and organizes their work around six key areas: forests, marine, freshwater, wildlife, food and climate. By linking these six areas in an integrated approach, they can better leverage their unique assets and direct all resources to protecting vulnerable places, species and communities worldwide.
