The UNDP Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) has launched the Small Grants Programme (SGP) in Colombia. The programme will finance projects through grants of up to $15,000 for community-based organizations and up to $35,000 for organizations with previous experience in resource management and implementation of projects.
SGP recognizes that environmental degradation such as the destruction of ecosystems and the species that depend upon them, increasing levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, pollution of international waters, land degradation and the spread of persistent organic pollutants are life-threatening challenges that endanger us all.
However, poor and vulnerable communities –SGP’s primary stakeholders- are most at risk because they depend on access to natural resources for their livelihoods and often live in fragile ecosystems.
