REDAA is excited to announce that a second grant call, aimed at scaling up locally led restoration, will open on Monday, 13 May.

This funding round introduces larger-sized 'Programme Grants' of £1,000,000 - £1,500,000. Up to nine grants will be awarded to locally led partnerships. 

Partnerships must include a minimum of two non-profit organisations: a lead organisation and a sub-grantee. One of these organisations should be a research organisation and the other an action-oriented non-governmental organisation. Wider partnerships can incorporate additional funded and non-funded partners, including other non-profit organisations, private sector organisations, government agencies and inter-governmental and UN agencies. 

This grant call will support initiatives in specific sub-regions and environments in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia.
