1) Objective

Darwin Initiative Extra invites projects that are on a clear scaling pathway: building on good evidence from smaller projects to demonstrating the potential to scale further by completion and delivering strong results for biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction.

Darwin Initiative Extra grants, ranging from £600,000 to £5m, are intended for approaches that are on a clear scaling pathway: building on good evidence from smaller projects and demonstrating the potential to scale further by completion, delivering strong results for biodiversity conservation and multidimensional poverty reduction within its lifetime. This can be through landscape or replication scaling, or through delivering systems change which will have sustained impact beyond the project’s original scale.

2) Eligibility

Applications must come from an organisation(s), and not an individual. Applicant organisations can be based in any country. Lead organisations will need to demonstrate turnover over the last 2 years of at least 25% of the value of the funds requested from Darwin.

3) Location

Least Developed Countries, Other Low Income Countries, Lower Middle Income Countries and Upper Middle Income Countries are eligible.

4) Budget

Darwin Initiative Extra will provide grants between £800,000 and £5,000,000 for projects lasting between 2 to 5 years maximum.

5) Application

The deadline is 16 September 2024.
