Global Forest Watch (GFW) is thrilled to announce the 2017 call for proposals for our Small Grants Fund. Now in its fourth year, the Small Grants Fund supports non-governmental organizations by providing financial and technical support to optimize their use of GFW tools and data for better forest monitoring and management.
This year, GFW is seeking proposals to turn deforestation information into action by rapidly responding to alert data. Successful applicants will use one or both of our near real-time datasets, the weekly GLAD alerts or daily VIIRS fire alerts, to slow or halt deforestation activities through law enforcement or advocacy.
Applications are due on April 15, and projects will run from June 2017 to March 2018.
