WWF’s Reforestation Grants: Advancing Locally Driven Forest Restoration

WWF, through the Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN), seeks to support local communities and organizations to restore native forest ecosystems and reverse degradation, whilst strengthening local capacity for enhancing management practices, and promoting alternative livelihoods with gender equity, in ways that attend to the local needs and aspirations.

To facilitate local communities and organizations’ efforts towards the restoration of degraded landscapes, WWF’s Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) provides grants to contribute to the initiatives of local organizations dedicated to restoring forest ecosystems. These grants also enhance the local capacity for managing natural resources whilst promoting more diversified livelihoods with gender equity.

Applications should clearly demonstrate how the proposed work aims to address the challenge of halting deforestation and forest degradation to advance human well-being and ecosystem integrity.
