G20 Land Initiative call for projects

G20 Land Initiative call for projects

The G20 Global Land Initiative is supporting this year up to 60 land restoration projects carried by CSOs, with grants ranging between USD 5,000 and 15,000. 

The call for proposal is open until 31 March 2024. More information available on the G20 land initiative website. 

The eligibility criteria are as follows (taken from the call for projects website): 

  1. Land restoration means improving land cover or land productivity. It covers a wide range of actions, such as reforestation, afforestation, agroforestry, sustainable agriculture, waste management avoiding land contamination, clean-up of contaminated land, avoiding waterlogging, rewetting of peatlands and improving soil quality. 
  2. Restoration of ecosystems can take place in any landscape. Forests, grasslands, drylands, rangelands, croplands, peatlands, mangroves, soil, karst, tundra and wetlands. 
  3. Restoration work can take place anywhere in the world. It is not limited to G20 member countries. Priority consideration will be given to submissions from civil society organizations, including Indigenous Peoples, from developing and least developed countries. 
  4. Proposed, new and ongoing projects will be considered for support. However, preference will be given to ongoing operations. 
  5. The funds may be used to expand the area of restoration, improve techniques, use new technology, provide technical assistance, build capacity or to document lessons learnt and communicate progress. Funds may also be used for a combination of the above. 
  6. Organizations must have an annual budget of USD 25,000 or more to be eligible. The funds must be used to scale up and elevate planned or ongoing efforts. Stand-alone projects that depend on this grant will not be considered for support. 
  7. Multi-year support may be considered based on demonstrated progress of implementation of the project and upon request. 

Applying to the call for proposal is made through an oline form on the G20 land initiative website.
