Our friends at the CLP have issued a call for proposals: Deadline 11 November

Our friends at the Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP), have issued a call for proposals. Many of our grant recipients have been supported by the CLP. We thought you might like to apply.

The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) aims to advance biodiversity conservation globally by building the leadership capabilities of early-career conservation professionals working in places with limited capacity to address high-priority conservation issues. This partnership initiative, including BirdLife International, Conservation International, Fauna & Flora International, and Wildlife Conservation Society, has been helping young conservationists across the world to achieve their goals for over 25 years. The Programme currently works toward its aims by offering awards, training and mentoring support. The CLP offers three levels of Conservation Awards:

• Future Conservationist Awards: Approximately 20 awards of up to $15,000 each
• Conservation Follow-up Awards: Approximately 6 awards of up to $25,000 each (available only to previous CLP Future Conservationist Award winners)
• Conservation Leadership Awards: 1 award of $50,000 each (available only to previous CLP Follow-up Award winners)

CLP projects must occur in and be led by nationals of countries excluded from the World Bank list of high-income economies across Africa, Asia, Eastern and South-eastern Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, where there tends to be fewer resources and capacity for conservation. Exceptions include some high-income economies located in some temperate and tropical areas of high biological diversity but thought to have low national capacity for conservation, including the Pacific Islands, Caribbean Islands and the Middle East. See list of countries below.

The application deadline for full proposals is 11th November 2013 for ALL applications. Those applying for Conservation Follow-up and Conservation Leadership Awards must submit a Logical Framework to the CLP by Tuesday, 1st October 2013. CLP will provide feedback on all logical frameworks by 16th October and, based on this review, will either invite applicants to submit a full proposal or not. Awards will be announced in April 2014. Please visit the CLP website (www.ConservationLeadershipProgramme.org) for detailed eligibility criteria, guidelines and an application form.
