UK Overseas Territories Fund
The UK Overseas Territories Fund aims to provide a strategic response to environmental needs in the UK Overseas Territories. Funders welcome funding applications for practical conservation activities in support of the protection and restoration of habitats and species on land and in the sea. They will consider funding organisational capacity building, policy related work, acquisition of land with intrinsic conservation value, and advocacy for the creation and implementation of legislative frameworks.
Funders are particularly interested in supporting organisations which:
understand both the significance of habitats for human wellbeing and the impact of people on nature
look for sustainable solutions by ensuring that the livelihoods and economic needs of local communities are integrated into their thinking and strategy
work collaboratively with partners and other stakeholders in the Territories and/or the UK
tackle causes as well as symptoms.
The Foundation expects to make a variety of small, medium and larger grants depending on funding need, size of organisation and the scale of the project. It will consider short-term grants as well as multi-year funding for periods of up to three years.
Who can apply
