Who are The Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP)?

The Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP) and the UNDP Accelerator Lab are joining forces to offer grant funding for small-scale projects, innovators, and thought leaders whose work supports the environment.
The GEF SGP provides financial and technical support to local communities including indigenous people, community-based organizations, and other non-governmental groups – for projects that conserve and restore the environment while enhancing people’s well-being and livelihoods. Such projects demonstrate that community action can maintain a fine balance between human needs and environmental conservation and protection.

Areas of interest for the challenge

The Tobago Innovation Challenge will support strategic projects and initiatives related to projects focused on:
1. Community-based conservation of threatened ecosystems and species
2. Sustainable agriculture and fisheries, and food security
3. Low-carbon energy access co-benefits
4. Local to global coalitions for chemicals and waste management
5. Catalyzing sustainable urban solutions
6. Strengthening entrepreneurship around indigenous eco-friendly goods and services
7. Community-building and peace
Social inclusion is an important criterion, and as such projects should support gender equity and address vulnerability and equality concerns.
