Aim and Benefits of GI-TOC Fellowship Program

Five individual proposals that address different contexts of environmental crime will be selected and supported through the following mechanisms:

Grants: This Fellowship aims to directly address the lack of financial support for initiatives targeting gender-inclusive projects that address environmental crime by providing grants of £12 000 to women leaders actively working to reduce environmental crime by empowering local women.

Capacity building: The grantees will have access to tailored capacity-building sessions. The Resilience Fund will provide each grantee with a mentor to support them in navigating the challenges unique to their context and projects and to help them with opportunities to raise the profile of their work.

Networking and collaboration: In October 2024, the Resilience Fund will invite grantees to Vienna, Austria, to participate in global policy-making forums and attend the 12th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime. The Fund will facilitate dialogues and meetings with grantees to identify ways to work together to prioritize gender issues and develop innovative strategies to protect their environments. They will also be invited to join the Resilience Fund Community Platform, which will give them access to funding opportunities, global dialogues and multilateral engagement after the grant ends.


Requirements for GI-TOC Fellowship Program Qualification

Applicants should have a background in one of the following fields: journalism and media; activism, advocacy and community mobilization; creative arts; community leadership; academia; or community-based human rights.
