A valuable starting point in the search for funding opportunities, this database provides relevant and up-to-date information on the types of funding available for sustainable forest management activities. The Sourcebook database undertakes to openly provide information to those seeking information on funding sources without prejudice.
Relevant data on funding sources are collected by active research and by soliciting both the forest community and funding sources to provide information in a standard format. Two scenarios for data collection have been identified:
FAO acts as the Sourcebook data repository. The database is managed so as to ensure data integrity, security and consistency. Quality control is performed in two stages:
Criteria for inclusion
Naturally, different funding sources have their own defined objectives and geographic target areas. While these will differ widely from fund to fund they must fall within our defined scope to warrant inclusion.
Each funding source requires the following information: fund name, manager name, manager title and e-mail, organization name, address, phone number, fax number, Web site URL, type of fund and an abstract describing the funding.
All information on funding sources will be retained unless a funding source requests that its details be deleted from the database. Those funds that may cease activity will be marked as inactive rather than being deleted.For more information on the criteria for including new sources in the database, write to CPF-Sourcebook@fao.org.
Important notice: Please check eligibility requirements carefully before contacting grant making bodies. Clearly ineligible applications are a waste of time for both parties and may lead to grant makers being removed from the database.
