SGP Country Programme Strategy

for utilization of OP6 grant funds

Country Programme Strategy (CPS) document serves as a framework for the country programme operations and provides a programmatic guidance for development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) in Armenia. The strategy sets basic project eligibility criteria and specifies types of projects to be funded through the programme. This document is designed to align SGP’s operational phase strategies to that of the GEF and be in accord with the national environmental priorities of Armenia responding to the requirements of global environmental conventions (UNFCCC, UNCBD, UNCCD, POPs), as well as documents related to national development and poverty reduction. Finally, the CPS identifies the strategic results to be addressed by the country programme during the sixth GEF Operational Phase (January 2015 - June 2018). The target audience addressed in this document is the project proponents (NGOs, CBOs and community groups), central, regional and local government bodies, bilateral and multilateral donors, private sector, National Steering Committee and the SGP country programme team.
