Civil Society Organizations operating in and around forested areas are some of the most effective champions of forest conservation and management. However, they frequently lack the resources or knowledge of how to incorporate the latest forest-monitoring technology into their research, advocacy, and field work.
The Small Grants Fund provides financial and technical support to organizations around the world to use Global Forest Watch’s tools and data to turn forest monitoring information into action. Working in close partnership with local organizations also helps GFW to understand how we can best adapt our tools to meet the unique needs of this user group.
The Small Grants Fund Call for Applications opens once a year. Though the specific focus of the Call varies from year to year, successful applicants must clearly articulate how GFW will support and enhance their ongoing work related to:
- - Advocacy
- - Community empowerment
- - Forest monitoring and enforcement
- - Journalism
