Malaysia: Habitat Foundation Conservation Grants
The Habitat Foundation’s Conservation Grants are now open to fund impactful and innovative interventions to advance the conservation of biodiversity in Malaysia.
Conservation Grants may be used to contribute to an ongoing programme of work and a longer-term mission, or they can support new pilot initiatives which have the potential to be scaled up for wider impact.
The proposal should be coherent with current government policies, plans, strategies and laws. Proposals should demonstrate a strong element of collaboration with key stakeholders in order to ensure the sustainability of project objectives. The existence of co-funding will also be regarded favourably in project selection.
Proposals for the Conservation Grants should:
focus on species and habitats of conservation significance;
address an important conservation issue;
demonstrate improved conservation practice and effective conservation actions;
provide evidence of community engagement and stakeholder participation in line with the National Policy on Biodiversity.
The typical value of Conservation Grants is in the range of RM15,000 to RM35,000.
The activity or project intervention proposed should be fully-implementable within a 6 – 20 month period.
Successful projects may be considered for a subsequent grant if there is good grounds for this support.
Applications for Conservation Grants may be made by individuals, non-government organizations, and community-based organizations.
Government agencies responsible for environmental protection, conservation, protected areas, and natural resources management are also encouraged to apply.
