Environmental reporting grants available [Worldwide]

Posted on Sep 30, 2021 in Specialized Topics

Media organizations, civil society organizations or academic institutions that are working to improve media coverage of biodiversity and conservation issues in countries where information is most under threat and most urgently needed can apply for these grants.

The Earth Journalism Network’s Biodiversity Media Initiative project has launched its second round of grant opportunities for environmental reporting.

The Biodiversity Media Grants will support projects that:

  • Build the capacity of journalism networks and media organizations to report on biodiversity and conservation issues.
  • Carry out biodiversity and/or conservation training activities for journalists.
  • Build internal capacity.
  • Organize local networks around these issues.

All activities must take place in the countries listed here. Applications for activities to be held in Russia will also be considered.

Projects that focus on conservation in biodiversity-rich regions of the world, such as the Amazon, Central Africa and Southeast Asia are especially encouraged.

This grant fund has US$64,000 available for awards this year, to be shared among four to five projects. Although applications for funding of any amount within this total will be considered, the average grant size should be between US$10,000 and US$15,000.

The deadline is Oct. 15.
