Call For Proposal 2014 - WWF: Reforestation Grants

Posted by Jamal Fida Friday, December 27, 2013 0 comments

Forest Landscape Restoration can bring back life to degraded (e.g. forest fires) or clear-cut areas (e.g. deforestation, extractive activities). When carefully planned, forest restoration activities can provide environmental services to the local community and develop new habitats in formerly bare areas. Restoration and reforestation activities also provide an excellent way to involve local stakeholders, generate income, and allow communities to connect with nature and become a vested part of a larger conservation program. Connecting corridors, creating buffer zones, improving degraded lands, restoring watersheds, and expanding forest cover are just a few ways that forest landscape restoration can have real and lasting impact for conservation. EFN, with generous funding from the UPS Foundation, has launched a special grant opportunity focused on supporting communities in regaining ecological integrity and enhancing human wellbeing in deforested or degraded forest landscapes.
