Conservation, Food, And Health Foundation
The Foundation, incorporated in 1985, seeks to promote the conservation of natural resources, improve the production and distribution of food, and improve health in the developing world. The Foundation helps build capacity within developing countries in its three areas of interest with grants that support research or projects that solve specific problems. Of particular interest are projects that demonstrate strong local leadership, promote professional development in the conservation, agricultural, and health sciences; develop the capacity of local organizations; and address a particular problem in the field. It prefers to support projects addressing under-funded issues and geographic areas. The Foundationís geographic focus is the developing world and preference for support is given to organizations located in developing countries or to developed country organizations whose activities are of direct and immediate benefit to developing countries. The Foundation does not consider the former Soviet Union or the former Eastern Bloc countries as within its geographic focus. The Foundation does not provide general operating support. It awards grants for research, training, and technical assistance projects. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
