The Small Grants Programme is a Global Environment Facility corporate programme implemented by UNDP on behalf of the three GEF implementing agences - UNEP, UNDP and the World Bank - and executed by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The SGP was established to achieve global environmental benefits at the community level.
The Barbados and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) SGP programme is guided by the global GEF SGP Strategic Plan. The overall goal is to achieve environmental sustainability, alleviate poverty and build capacity at the community level. Since 2006 the programme has transitioned to a results based management approach which focuses on creating sustainable and measurable impacts. To achieve these impacts each country will operate using a Country Programme Strategy (CPS) which will identify the priority areas for funding using a geographic and/or a thematic approach.
