Фонд сохранения, продовольствия и здоровья приглашает НПО

 

The Conservation, Food and Health Foundation seeks to protect natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and promote public health in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East.

The foundation helps build the capacity of organizations and coalitions with grants that support research or improve the learning and generation of local solutions to complex problems.

The foundation supports projects that demonstrate local leadership and promotes professional development in the conservation, agricultural, and health sciences; develops the capacity of local organizations; and addresses a particular problem or question in the field. It prefers to support projects that address under-funded issues and geographic areas.

Fields of Interest

The foundation supports special projects and programs of non-governmental organizations in three areas: conservation, food, and health. Examples of areas of interest within these fields follow, but are not meant to be exclusive.

        Conservation: Conservation grants help improve ecological and environmental conditions in low- and middle-income countries. The foundation supports field research and related research activities, training, and technical assistance efforts that:

        help conserve ecosystems and protect biodiversity

        train local leaders in conservation and protection of resources, with an emphasis on technical and scientific training

        Food: Food grants help research-based efforts to improve food and nutrition security and improve natural resources and ecosystems. Areas of interest include projects that:

        promote or develop specific sustainable agriculture practices with potential to advance science and practice in other countries;

        test and refine innovative education and training interventions for small scale farmers; and

        advance new approaches to control pests and diseases affecting important food crops in low-income countries

        Health: The foundation supports public health programs that focus on populations rather than individuals. It funds programs that emphasize disease prevention and health promotion over those that emphasize disease diagnosis, treatment, and care. It supports research, technical assistance, and training projects that:

        improve public health through community-based efforts that address health promotion, disease prevention, family planning, and reproductive health; and

        increase the understanding and treatment of neglected tropical diseases

Types of Support

        feature collaborative partnerships embedded in strong networks
