The Rapid Response Facility (RRF) releases the 2014 legacy report summarizing its lasting impacts of eight years of cooperation with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and its partners, notably the Franz Weber Foundation and Fauna & Flora International.

The programme provides emergency support to natural World Heritage sites in developing countries. Since 2006, The RRF has given 35 grants providing much needed support for the world’s most important natural wonders when they needed help most. This has contributed to the protection of nearly 30 million hectares of the world’s most valuable natural habitats on both land and sea, across some 21 countries.

The RRF provides individual grants of up to $30,000 and makes funding decisions within a target of eight days, making it the world’s fastest conservation funding body.
