1) Objective

At Stage 1 assessors are looking for applicants and proposals that have the potential to deliver a competitive proposal at Stage 2. At Stage 2, assessors are looking for evidence that proposals are new and distinctive, with a strong probability of delivering sustainable benefits and a scalable approach. Capability and capacity building activities should form a core role within the approach, to underpin the legacy of the grant. Available evidence  is expected to be good, stronger than that required for Innovation grants, and can include building on the successes and lessons learnt from elsewhere including previous projects (whether by the applicants or others).

Given the need for proposal to be based on a good evidence base, the level of innovation is not expected to be high, but the proposal can contain innovative elements. In addition to presenting evidence of how the approach will deliver outputs within the project lifespan, the project should articulate any evidence to support its ambition and vision to scale their approach.

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 Main invites applications for environmental projects between £100,000 and £800,000 for projects lasting 1 to 5 years maximum.

5) Application

The deadline is 8 July 2024. All applications should be submitted via the Flexi-Grant application portal.
