Conservation Follow-up Award

The Conservation Follow-Up Award is available to CLP project teams that have received a Future Conservationist Award.

Grants of up to $20,000 and coaching support are available to teams addressing a conservation issue raised by recommendations in a project previously supported by CLP. Projects should be focused on direct conservation outputs, for example lobbying, awareness raising, education, training and monitoring. Applications for Follow-up Awards will only be considered once a full final report, financial report and evaluation form have been submitted for the initial project.

As with the Future Conservationist Award, results and data from Conservation Follow-Up Award projects should inform national action plans and international priority setting.

In 2017, CLP funding will be available to teams conducting projects in the following countries:

Africa
Algeria, Angola, Egypt, Libya, Mozambique, South Africa

Eurasia
Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey

Latin America & Caribbean
Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico

Asia & Pacific
China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam

Middle East
Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, United Arab Emirates

On top of this, winning teams are able to access expertise from within each of the three conservation partner organizations and via our Alumni Network that includes past award winners. Programme staff members are also available to advise on project implementation, including guidance required during the planning and team training stages.
