Projects will need to demonstrate how they will be able to reduce poverty and improve the quality of life amongst populations affected by the illegal wildlife trade.Applications for this next round of proposals open on 22 October and close on 13 December. For every £1 donated to a UK Aid Match charity appeal, the government will also contribute £1 of UK aid. Each charity appeal must run for up to three months and raise up to a maximum of £2million, subject to a due diligence assessment.Applications for funding can only be made through the online portal.International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt said:“UK Aid Match gives the British public a chance to see the money they donate to their most passionate development causes matched pound-for-pound by the government.“We owe it to future generations for UK aid to work alongside some of our most innovative and hard-working charities to tackle the scourge of the Illegal Wildlife Trade and protect our natural environment. I want to encourage our partners to look to UK Aid Match as a way of furthering their efforts to do this and connecting with the British public.“To do so is a win for the public; a win for the world’s poorest people; and a win for wildlife.”In the last five years, UK Aid Match has supported 42 charities and run projects in 27 countries.
