1) Objective

SwedBio has a “Collaborative Programme” and can support a limited number of strategic initiatives in developing countries. Through the Collaborative Program SwedBio contributes to organisations in low income countries and least developed countries. It supports strategic initiatives of relevance for SwedBio’s objectives. Through collaboration with the partner organisations joint learning is generated that can contribute to the policy work SwedBio does in its knowledge interface role. SwedBio can only fund initiatives that are relevant to the objectives of SwedBio at Stockholm Resilience Centre:

(1) Development Objective (Vision): ”The vision of the Stockholm Resilience Centre is a world where social-ecological systems are understood, governed and managed, to enhance human well-being and the capacity to deal with complexity and change, for the sustainable co-evolution of human civilizations with the biosphere;” and (2) Programme Objective (Mission): “Enable knowledge generation, dialogue and exchange between practitioners, policy makers and scientists for development and implementation of policies and methods at multiple scales – which contribute to poverty alleviation, equity, sustainable livelihoods and social-ecological systems rich in biodiversity that persist, adapt and transform under global change such as climate change”.

2) Eligibility

SwedBio supports international organisations, institutes, universities and civil society organisations, including indigenous peoples and local communities organisations, in particular regional and global networks of these kinds of organisations, with projects and programmes of regional and global relevance.

3) Location

Actions can take place in developing countries (according to the OECD DAC list of low income countries and least developed countries).

4) Budget

SwedBio contributes to shorter projects through our small-grants support (total support corresponding to maximum SEK 500,000) and to longer, multi-year projects.

5) Application

SwedBio welcomes submissions of concept notes continuously and also looks for organisations and project ideas themselves. Short concept notes (not more than 3 pages) with a description of the project and requested amount can be submitted to swedbio(a)su.se. It does not have a template for concept notes or proposals, and welcomes different formats to allow for synergies with other contributing donor’s requirements. Based on the initial assessment, the Working Group will decide whether to invite an applicant to proceed with a full proposal for the project idea or not. They aim to get back with a response within 6 weeks.
