GEF SGP Best Practice and Knowledge Fair

I. Background:

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) provides non-governmental and community-based organizations (NGOs/CBOs) in developing countries with grants to enable them to tackle various environmental conservation projects related to climate change, conservation biodiversity, pollution, to name a few. The Programme is a GEF corporate programme, implemented by UNDP and executed by UNOPS.
The Best Practice and Knowledge Fair is an important modality which aims to meet the capacity building objective of the programme, i.e. enhancing and strengthening capacities of NGOs/CBOs to understand and implement convention guidelines, engage in consultative processes, apply knowledge management to ensure information flows, and monitor and evaluate environmental impacts and trends. It is a key activity designed to support networking and knowledge exchange among SGP grantees as well as other CSOs and the public to promote replication and scaling up of projects and best practices. It is also expected to strengthen the capacity of civil society to influence policy development processes through participation in events that draw in influential individuals and institutions.

II. Objectives:

The purpose of the Best Practice and Knowledge Fair is to enable SGP grantees and other CSO stakeholders to network, share and showcase best practices, innovative technologies and lessons learned developed by the civil society to promote the replication and scaling up of results for greater policy influence and transformational change; as well as to promote sustainability and the mobilization of additional resources for community-based sustainable development initiatives.

We welcome participation from Corporate Sectors, Foundations, Funding Agencies, Non governmental organisation, Community Based organisations etc.
