About the Organization

IUCN NL is an international nature organisation that operates from Amsterdam. We are part of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the largest union for nature conservation in the world.

Our vision is a just world in which nature is valued and protected. Our goal? To safeguard nature as the foundation for all life on earth. In this endeavour we devote special attention to areas that have a high natural value and special biodiversity, which are under pressure, and to the people who depend on that nature.

About the Grant

The IUCN NL Land Acquisition Fund invites local conservation NGOs and CSOs from around the world to submit their proposal to safeguard nature. The fund contributes to initiatives acquiring threatened nature, creating reserves and connecting wildlife habitats for endangered species. This includes land purchase, long term lease of land and other effective area-based conservation measures (OECMs).

Since its foundation in 2001, the Land Acquisition Fund of IUCN NL has enabled safeguarding over 60.000 hectares of natural habitat. Through the work of the local NGOs, land acquisition creates a win-win for biodiversity, the climate and human well-being. The Land Acquisition Fund is supported by a growing number of private donors.

The general objective of the proposed project must be in line with the objective of the Land Acquisition Fund: providing funds to local NGOs and CSOs to acquire threatened nature, create safe reserves and connect wildlife habitats for endangered species.

Furthermore, potentially successful proposals are from NGOs or CSOs that have:

  • experience and capacity concerning the effective management of a conservation area, and
  • experience and capacity in the field of project management and financial management and control.

The Land Acquisition Fund cannot grant financial assistance to:

  • individuals,
  • commercial (for profit) organisations,
  • governmental institutions, and
  • projects/ organisations with a primary focus on sustainable agricultural systems or to education, rescue, or rehabilitation centres.
