Eligible Activities

All activities must support Strategic Direction 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot. Under this Strategic Direction, we are looking for projects that will introduce new management models involving direct participation of CSOs or indigenous and local communities at protected areas.

  • We expect to make 4 or 5 grants to civil society organizations in the Eastern Afromontane portions of Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda that plan to introduce new management models involving direct participation of CSOs or indigenous and local communities in at least 4 protected areas.
  • With ‘new management models’ we mean any model that is not the ‘conventional’ model of government-owned and government-managed protected areas. This can include co-management models, community-managed areas, areas set aside by corporate sector entities, etc. For further guidance, please contact the Regional Implementation Team at CEPF-EAM-RIT@birdlife.org
  • With ‘protected areas’ we mean all protected area categories a defined by IUCN: https://www.iucn.org/theme/protected-areas/about/protected-area-categories, as well as Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs).
  • Applications from women’s groups and Indigenous People’s organizations are specifically encouraged.
