The Global Environment Facility Small Grants Program (SGP), implemented by United Nations Development Program (UNDP), is a decentralized and country-driven program that seeks to provide maximum country and community-level ownership and initiatives for the achievement of the global environmental benefits.

SGP has been operational for the past 25 years supporting projects from Civil Society Organizations in 125 countries.  SGP has supported over 21,589 projects globally.  SGP’s mandate is to support community based initiatives by Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) including farmers’ organizations, scientific community, women’s groups and the youth and children organizations to address global environmental challenges.  To meet its objectives, SGP works closely with government, micro finance institutions, academic and research institutions, private sector, and local authorities.

Past reviews of SGP conducted by the Joint GEF-UNDP evaluation show that SGP is recognized as a cost-effective mechanism for delivering financial and technical resources to local communities, and has an established, well-tested modality for working with local communities. SGP’s operational modality consists of a decentralized decision-making body called National Steering Committee (NSC). The NSC’s are very important institutional set up for the proper operation of the SGP.
