The CCI Collaborative Fund for Conservation (also known as the CCI Fund) has been established to support innovative, collaborative conservation projects undertaken by CCI partners. Every project should address a high priority biodiversity conservation issue and include some combination of research, education, policy and practice.
Applications should normally address one or more of the agreed CCI Goals and Themes. The CCI Fund aims to facilitate innovative and necessary collaborations between CCI members, with particular emphasis on enabling successful partnerships between University of Cambridge Departments and Cambridge area based conservation organisations.
The CCI Fund has been established thanks to the generous support of the Arcadia fund, which recognises the vital need for collaborative approaches to investigating global conservation problems and creating sustainable solutions. The CCI Fund is administered by the office of the Executive Director of CCI with grants being awarded by a Selection Panel.
The Fund complements other CCI programmes, including the Research/Policy/Practice Interface Programme and the Capacity Building and Leadership Programme and may support projects on issues that arise from such CCI activities.
Please note that the CCI Collaborative Fund for Conservation is only available to CCI member organisations and University of Cambridge Departments.
For more information, criteria, eligibility and guidelines for application please contact Lisa Harris, Executive Assistant, CCI.
