2020 Call for CLP Conservation Award funding applications

Conservation Leadership Programme is excited to announce their call for applications for the 2020 Conservation Awards!

Date published: 2019/08/30

We are now accepting applications for our 2020 Conservation Awards. This funding supports early-career conservationists to conduct scientific research, encourage and promote pro-conservation attitudes and deliver tangible results to better conserve and manage the natural world.

In this round we are accepting applications for projects across Africa, Asia, Eastern and South-eastern Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean. Countries that are not eligible include those designated as high-income economies by the World Bank, with the exception of some countries and island nations in Latin America & Caribbean and the Pacific.

We will offer three levels of Conservation Awards:

Among other criteria, projects must take place in an eligible country, be led (or co-led) by a national of one of these countries, involve at least three team members and last no more than 12 months. The projects must also target species that are listed as Data Deficient, Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered on the global IUCN Red List.

The deadline for Future Conservationists Awards applications is 24 November 2019. Previous CLP grantees applying for a Conservation Follow-up or Conservation Leadership award must submit the final report from their previous CLP project and a logical framework to CLP by 18 October 2019. CLP will provide feedback on all logical frameworks by 25th October and, based on this review, will either invite applicants to submit a full proposal or not. All awards will be announced in April 2020.

This call for applications has been made possible thanks to support from Arcadia – a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin.
