The purpose is to conserve and sustainably manage biodiversity and forests and to strengthen wildlife trafficking interdiction through capacity-building activities in the Heart of Borneo region.

A grant for up to $99,000 U. S. Dollars in FY 2015 Economic Support Funds will be awarded for work that will support efforts to conserve an estimated 24 million hectares of biodiversity-rich equatorial rainforests which cover a third of the island of Borneo/Kalimantan.

The Heart of Borneo Initiative focuses on developing a coalition to maintain forests and biodiversity in a network of protected areas and sustainably managed forests through international cooperation, and includes wildlife trafficking interdiction efforts focused on East Kalimantan in Indonesia and the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak.

The Heart of Borneo is led by the three nations containing the Heart of Borneo - Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

The initial period of performance for the grant will be for two years.
