Call for Proposals

The implementation team for CEPF investments in the Eastern Himalayas region is calling for Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for biodiversity conservation projects in priority areas in Bhutan. LOIs are now being accepted for projects with budgets greater than $20,000 from organizations with knowledge of these priority areas and related experience.

Interested applicants should read the Eastern Himalayas ecosystem profile (PDF, 3.4 MB) before applying to ensure that LOIs are linked to the relevant species, site, and corridor outcomes.

To apply for a Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) grant, all applicants must submit a Letter of Inquiry.

For grants of more than $20,000, if invited, you would then need to complete and submit a more detailed proposal.

Before beginning, it's best to consult the CEPF investment strategy for the region where you propose to work. Each project must be linked to one of the strategic directions in the strategy to be eligible for funding.

The strategy is included in the ecosystem profile for the region, available in both the Where We Work and Publications sections.
