Resilience Fund is pleased to announce the launch of its women’s fellowship aimed at empowering women leaders to enhance community resilience to environmental crime.

The initiative, titled ‘Strengthening women’s resilience to organized environmental crime’, seeks to address the critical intersection of gender and environmental crime by championing the voices of women working to protect the environment.

This Fellowship is specifically designed for women working on environmental projects that have a clear link to environmental organized crime or the illicit trade in natural resources.

Eligibility Criteria

The Women’s Fellowship aims to support five women leaders working locally to protect the environment and address community needs arising from illicit natural resource economies, particularly by developing women’s resilience.

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.

The Resilience Fund invites applications from women of all ethnic backgrounds, ages, religions or other defining characteristics who are actively working in communities affected by environmental crime. Applicants must have full or professional working proficiency in English.

Each Fellow will be awarded a total of £12 000, payable in three instalments of £4 000 each.
