WWF - Reforestation Grants

WWF has the objective to take to scale landscape approaches, including restoration, in at least 10 landscapes where forest ecosystem services are valued and conserved by 2020. In 2012, with support from The UPS Foundation, EFN launched the Reforestation Grant Program to fulfill this goal by supporting locally-based organizations working in WWF priority areas to plant, protect, and preserve trees. Together, these locally-led projects are helping to restore and reforest tropical areas of significant conservation value.

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 through forest restoration.

When carefully planned, forest restoration activities can provide environmental services to the local community and develop new habitats in formerly bare areas. 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.
