The Darwin Initiative


The Darwin Initiative is a UK government grants scheme that helps to protect biodiversity and the natural environment through locally based projects worldwide.

Projects typically try to address threats to biodiversity such as:

  • over-exploitation
  • invasive species
  • habitat degradation and loss
  • climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • pollution

The Darwin Initiative currently funds NatureFiji-MareqetiViti’s: Delivering on Sustainable Forest Management for Fiji’s People and Wildlife. The project is being implemented with the Fiji Department of Forests and BirdLife International.
