The Darwin Initiative set to fund 52 projects sharing £10.6 million


The Darwin Initiative will fund 52 projects around the globe sharing £10.6 million and delivering commitments in the 25 Year Environment Plan.

The UK Government has announced the latest round of successful funding bids from the Darwin Initiative to deliver on flagship commitments set out in the 25 Year Environment Plan.

Since 1992, the Darwin Initiative has funded 1,055 projects from 159 countries, with a value of £140m.

The Darwin Initiative is a grants scheme that helps to protect biodiversity and the natural environment around the globe. Many of the applications reflect the UK Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan commitments to protect the marine environment, to secure the benefits of biodiversity for the poorest communities, and to help prevent the extinction of species.
