Communities and Small Scale Mining (CASM)

The Communities and Small Scale Mining (CASM) is a small grants scheme of the World Bank that provides a support of US $5,000 to projects which are focused upon reducing poverty and increasing sustainable development in communities through artisanal and small-scale mining. NGOs and community-based organizations can seek this fund by submitting project proposals. The proposals should clearly outline the need and the result expected. Primary stakeholders should be part of the planning process and their contribution should also be underlined clearly. More information about this fund is available at this link.

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Programme (ESMAP) is another funding scheme of the World Bank focusing upon building the technical expertise of the grant recipients for identifying and promoting energy. Energy can be an important area of intervention for reducing poverty and increasing economic growth. The Programme covers developing countries and supports studies, research and intervention leading to environmental sustainability. NGOs can submit proposals to this Programme, but need to demonstrate innovation, expertise and strong interest, combining sustainable use of energy with poverty reduction. More information about this Programme is available at this link.
