UNDP GEF Small Grants Programme Call for Proposals- Capacity Building and Knowledge Fair 2014


The Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) provides civil society organisations (CSO’s) with grants to enable them to tackle climate change, conserve biodiversity, protect international waters, reduce the impact of chemicals and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), and prevent land degradation. With these environment-centered “grant projects” the programme also seeks to generate sustainable livelihoods and reduce poverty in the world’s neediest countries and regions. The SGP motto is “community action with global impact!”
