Darwin Initiative Extra Grant Program

About

Applicants are now invited for the Darwin Initiative Extra Grant Program.

Darwin Initiative Extra grants, ranging from £600,000 to £5m, are intended for approaches that are on a clear scaling pathway: building on good evidence from smaller projects to demonstrating the potential to scale further by completion, delivering strong results for biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction.

This can be through landscape or replication scaling, or through delivering systems change which will have sustained impact beyond the project’s original scale. They expect these projects to be supported by strong evidence.

The Darwin Initiative Extra is intended for projects that are on a clear scaling pathway: building on good evidence from smaller projects to demonstrating the potential to scale further by completion and delivering strong results for biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction.

Elements

Elements of successful Darwin Initiative projects are likely to include:

  • Enhancing the Capability and Capacity of national and local stakeholders, to help ensure a project’s long-term legacy.

  • Delivering outputs that will achieve both biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction.

  • Strengthen the adoption or use of evidence and best practices in biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction.

Funding Information

Darwin Initiative Extra will continue under Round 29 for projects between £600,000 and £5m.

Eligibility :

  • Lead Partners can be based anywhere, but they strongly encourage projects to have in-country Lead Partners.

  • All projects are strongly expected to seek and work with in-country partners, with the meaningful and early engagement of in-country stakeholders.

  • All projects must consider how they will contribute to reducing inequality between genders, with activities expected to generate net benefits for women and girls.

  • Darwin Initiative is entirely Official Development Assistance (ODA) funded, and therefore projects must promote the economic development and welfare of developing countries as a primary objective, and the eligible countries projects will in practice be expected to be mostly focused on Low Income and Lower Middle-Income countries.

  • Upper Middle-Income countries (UMICs) are eligible, however, projects applying to work in a UMIC must clearly demonstrate a stronger case for support. This includes operating in areas of high importance for biodiversity and a clear poverty reduction need. Such applications must also clearly demonstrate that they will also:

    • advance knowledge, evidence and impact in Least Developed or Low-Income Countries, or

    • contribute to a global public good, for example by advancing understanding and/or strengthening the knowledge base related to biodiversity conservation/sustainable use and poverty reduction, or

    • contribute to serious and unique advancements on a critical issue as a result of specific circumstances of the upper-middle income country that could not be made elsewhere.
