Waterloo Foundation Grants - India,UK and other Countries - Last date 1st June 2017

Funds for NGOs

Activities: Forest & Environment,Others


Why we want to help:

The world has approximately 4 billion hectares of forest, representing almost 30% of the Earth's landmass, with roughly 56 percent of these forests lying in tropical and subtropical areas1. More than 1 billion people rely heavily on forests for their livelihoods2, and they are the most biologically-diverse ecosystems on land, home to more than half of all terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects3. Forests also play a vital role in global climate regulation through the sequestration and storage of carbon.

But despite increased awareness of their importance, forests are experiencing escalating impact from human activities. Although the precise area is debated, each day at least 32,300 ha of forest disappear from Earth and at least another 32,300 ha of forest are degraded4. Across the world’s extant tropical forests it is estimated that 24% are intact, 46% are fragmented and 30% otherwise degraded5 . It has been calculated that the deforestation of tropical forests is responsible for about 20 percent of current global carbon emissions6, making it a major contributor to climate change.

What we will support:

Under our Tropical Rainforests programme, preference will be given to initiatives working to protect tropical rainforests for their value to the climate, communities and biodiversity, principally through avoided deforestation. We will consider both practical local projects, and strategic initiatives.

 Local projects

Applications for practical local projects that we will consider would typically be working on a specified tropical rainforest area, defined in hectares. We will generally only accept applications for the protection of areas larger than 10,000 hectares. Applicants will need to demonstrate how their project involves:

Exposing, addressing and overcoming the local drivers of deforestation
Management of the specified area
Methods to measure and monitor the protected area
Sustainable livelihoods for forest-dependent communities

 Strategic projects

We will consider applications for strategic projects that are working on addressing the drivers of deforestation on a wider or international scale. These could include:

Working on international or regional forest policy
Campaigning for improved practices in commerce
Innovative ways of reducing deforestation e.g. financial systems or solutions based on the value of forest ecosystem services

We are not able to offer funding for:

Tree planting projects
Projects focused solely on the use of fuel-efficient stoves – we have selected one partner to undertake forest-related efficient stove interventions
Projects with animal conservation as the sole focus
Research projects
Projects focusing on environmental education
We are currently not accepting proposals for REDD and carbon finance projects
Projects based in countries that are not secure and politically stable. We are therefore unlikely to support projects in conflict-affected areas such as within DRC and CAR.
In addition, we only consider proposals from US-based organisations under exceptional circumstances, due to the higher availability of environmental funding in the US compared to the UK.

If you think that you are eligible for funding, please see the Environment - Application Guidelines page for guidance about how to submit a funding application. 
Please note that all applications must be submitted to
