The Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) is pleased to offer two to three grants of $10,000 each for innovative uses of www.OpenLandContracts.org, the world’s first searchable repository of publicly available agriculture and forestry contracts. The grants are offered to support and advance innovative uses of the repository and its content.

 

OpenLandContracts.org aims to promote greater transparency of land-based investments, facilitate a better understanding of the contracts that govern them, and provide useful tools for governments, communities, companies, and other stakeholders. It is supported by UKaid from the Department for International Development. More information can be found on our website: http://www.openlandcontracts.org/about

 

For this mini-grants program, CCSI seeks proposals for projects that make use of OpenLandContracts.org to promote more sustainable investments in agriculture or forestry, support different stakeholders in understanding land-based investments and their implications, or provide new insight into such investments.

 

Applications must be submitted via email (ccsi@law.columbia.edu) or sent in hard copy format by regular mail. Please note that applications must be received by CCSI on or before January 31, 2018.
