Global Environment Facility Small Grants Project (GEF SGP)
Demonstrating that community action can maintain the fine balance between human needs and environmental imperatives
The Small Grants Programme (SGP) is a Global Environment Facility corporate programme implemented by UNDP on behalf of all three GEF implementing agencies – UNEP, UNDP and the World Bank – and executed by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). SGP balances global criteria and goals with programme implementation that is appropriate to each country. It provides financial and technical assistance to Community Based Organisations (CBOs) and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) for projects, which conserve and restore the environment while enhancing people’s well-being and livelihoods. SGP demonstrates that community action can maintain the fine balance between human needs and environmental imperatives.
