Hariyo Ban Program: Public Call for Small Grants Application

The Hariyo Ban Program is designed to benefit nature and people in Nepal, and is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The program is implemented by a consortium of four partners: World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Nepal as prime recipient; the Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE); the National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC); and the Federation of Community Forestry Users, Nepal (FECOFUN). The first phase was implemented from 2011 to 2016; a second phase will run for another five years. The second phase will build on the foundation of Phase I, applying lessons learned and scaling up promising approaches.  It works on two core interwoven components – biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation (CCA) including market based livelihoods and gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) and governance, being important cross-cutting themes in two landscapes – Terai Arc Landscape (TAL) and Chitwan Annapurna Landscape (CHAL).  
In order to ensure innovation, flexibility and responsiveness; Hariyo Ban Program has a Small Grants Program. The Program supports capacity building, provides technical assistance, and helps grab new opportunities that arise in the fields of biodiversity conservation, CCA, livelihoods, GESI and governance.  

On behalf of the consortium, WWF Nepal invites proposals from relevant GoN agencies, CSOs (NGOs, academic and research institutions, community based organizations), private sector organizations, consulting firms, individuals, and media houses and Students. Major themes for the Small Grants Program are: Biodiversity Conservation, Climate Change Adaptation, Market based livelihood opportunities, Gender Equality and Social Inclusion, Governance, Communications and Outreach, and Monitoring and Evaluation.
