Sustainable Community Forestry Programme
The Sustainable Community Forestry Programme provides funding to community-based organisations (CBOs) to deliver community-level participatory projects that conserve and restore local forest resources and associated biodiversity, improve local livelihoods through sustainable use of trees and related income generation and increase resilience to climate change.
We prioritise support for new community-based organisations so that we are also helping them to build their own capacity to achieve their aims and objectives. We encourage the preservation of indigenous knowledge and the planting of indigenous species of trees.
The Sustainable Community Forestry Programme supports projects in sub-Saharan Africa that:
- Conserve, restore and protect indigenous forest resources, habitats and associated biodiversity
- Support community-led natural resource management and regeneration to promote reforestation
- Improve nutrition, food security and local livelihoods through sustainable use of forests and trees
- Impact positively on climate change and carbon sequestration.
Future grants will be announced on this page, or you can sign up to our newsletter where we will announce all funding opportunities!
