The Darwin Initiative funds capacity building, training, research, and education in support of the major conventions on biodiversity -- focusing on the developing world. The program invites applications for main projects, which are normally around £250 thousand to £300 thousand for projects of up to three years. There are no restrictions on the location or nationality of applicants, but projects must benefit biodiversity and local communities in developing countries. The application deadline for main projects (Stage 1) is 20 July 2015. Other Darwin Initiative schemes for post projects, scoping projects, and Darwin Fellowships will be launched later this year.
