The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
Global Environmental Fund (GEF) Small Grants
GEF /SGP operated as a sub regional program that operated out of UNDP-Barbados. National offices are now set up in all the OECS Island. Antigua's office has been set up 18 months now. They work in the environmental areas of climate change, renewable energies, biodiversity, land degradation, chemicals and pollutants and international waters.
The projects, for only NGO's, are reviewed and approved by a local national steering committee. To date 14 projects approved. Churches are coming on board and are involved in development programs and projects.
The objective is for communities to find solutions to solve environmental projects that reduce poverty, increase income and employment and which builds up the capacities of the NGO's.
