For the fifth time since the program starts in 2009, TFCA-Sumatera opens an opportunity for the NGOs and other eligible entities to submit their grant application to fund forest conservation activities at the landscape level. The funds are directed towards the application of conservation programs on two categories, namely 1) Large scale landscape-based integrated conservation programs, which integrate interventions at policy, landscape and community levels; and 2) Smaller scale, individual or thematic conservation programs.
Following the launch of the call for proposal, during September the 2nd to October the 2nd, 2014, the Administrator received 31 proposals from individual organizations and consortia. The focus work areas for the integrated landscape based intervention of this 5th grant cycle will be Sembilang National Park and Siberut National Parks. The thematic programs for this 5th cycle include among other issues on: 1) community-based forest management, 2) ecosystem restoration 3) Ecosystem-based spatial planning 4) Support for the management of Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra, 5) endangered species rescue and conflict resolution, or 6) Other themes that support or enhance the conservation impact significantly on the existing grants.
The Administrator and OCTM are now working on the review of the 31 proposals, which will result in the recommendation for the decision by the Oversight Committee on December 2014.SHARE:
