Funding of WOCAT

With the strong international setup of the WOCAT Network and the growing recognition of the importance of Sustainable Land Management (SLM) in development overall, new and more diverse funding opportunities are emerging and being sought. Building on their comparative advantages, Consortium and Network Partners are working together to harmonize approaches and develop user-friendly tools and applications, thus helping to leverage additional resources and wider support.

WOCAT International endeavours to increasingly generate long-term programme funding to ensure its effectiveness and sustainability in providing its services to Network members and partner organizations while keeping up with newest developments. At the same time, WOCAT also welcomes short-term funding and donations.
