Global Forest Watch Small Grants Fund

Established in 2014, the Small Grants Fund seeks to promote broad uptake and innovative use of Global Forest Watch by civil society around the world. The SGF provides financial and technical support to empower civil society organizations to apply Global Forest Watch data and technology in support of their work to strengthen local forest management and conservation practices, conduct evidence-based advocacy and campaigning, and promote greater transparency in the forest sector.

Eligibility

The Small Grants Fund seeks applications for projects that use or contribute to Global Forest Watch. Potential project concepts may include but are not limited to:

  • Using GFW to support evidence-based advocacy, campaigning, education, or training;
  • Increasing forest transparency by (a) promoting disclosure of geospatial data by companies, governments or communities, by (b) aggregating and surfacing existing forest data, or by (c) developing new geospatial data for GFW;
  • Using GFW for journalism or other evidence-based storytelling to support broad communication and to raise awareness about a specific issue;
  • Generating original, policy-relevant research or analysis to discern spatial or temporal trends in land use, forest change or drivers of deforestation;
  • Supporting baseline setting or measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) for REDD+ projects;
  • Building a customized app (web- or mobile-based tool) using GFW’s open source API;
