Conservation Leadership Programme calls application for 2021 CLP Team Awards.
The award-winning teams will benefit from a project grant as well as global recognition for their exceptional work in conservation. All team members will have opportunities to build connections with peers and access expert mentorship through the CLP Alumni Network (comprising over 2,700 past recipients around the world); CLP partner organizations; and the CLP Management Team.
Individuals from winning teams are also invited to participate in international, regional and online training courses to develop their conservation knowledge and skills. The international Conservation Management & Leadership course is particularly renowned among CLP alumni. One trainee from last year’s course, for example, described it as helping her “shape the way I see conservation and how to be an effective leader, making me a better mentor for future conservationists” (Gabriela Ochoa, Honduras).
Applicants must propose projects that support the conservation of species listed as Data Deficient, Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered on the global IUCN Red List. Projects must take place in an eligible country, be led (or co-led) by a national of one of these countries, and involve at least three team members. Projects submitted for Future Conservation Awards should last for three to 12 months. Follow-up projects may be up to but no more than two years in length.
Once you submit your application for CLP Team Awards, it will be reviewed by the CLP Management Team who will check that both the project and team meet the eligibility criteria for funding. If your application is eligible, it will then be reviewed by conservation experts who will score your project proposal based on its feasibility, contribution to conservation, and capacity development of the teams. Decisions will be made in March 2021 by the CLP Award Selection Committee and the winners are expected to be announced in April 2021.
