Six grant projects approved

Today, the National Steering Committee of the Global Environment Facility\'s (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) in Armenia approved six grant projects. Among them 4 projects were approved through GEF SGP funding and 2 – through GEF-funded Mainstreaming Sustainable Land and Forest Management in Mountain Landscapes of North-eastern Armenia (SLM/SFM) project, for which the SGP serves as a delivery mechanism. The projects address the following OP-6 strategic initiatives: Climate Smart Innovative Agro-ecology and Low Carbon Energy Access Co-benefits.

The GEF SGP is a funding facility, supporting community-based organizations that address global environmental concerns through small scale activities at the local level. The Programme supports grassroots initiatives in the focal areas of biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation, protection of international waters, prevention of land degradation and phasing out of harmful chemicals including POPs. When addressing these issues, SGP also aims to meet objectives related to poverty reduction and empowerment of local population as integral aspects of sustainable development and environmental protection.
