Thursday, November 5, 2009 – Civil Society Organisations and other community groups with an environmental conservation mandate, are being encouraged to take advantage of funding under the Global Environmental Facility Small Grants Programme, (SGP).


The programme's sub-regional coordinator Giles Romulus, says the SGP programme is on a drive to fund projects in Saint Lucia, that address environmental problems at the community level, while at the same time creating employment.


Mr. Romulus says grants are available for up to US$50,000. “We want to make an appeal to civil society organisations, groups, community development officers, extension officers and sustainable development officers We want to inform them that funding is available out of our UNDP office in Barbados ad we want to encourage them to apply. However we are asking groups to begin to think about challenges relating to the environment they face at the community level. We want them to think about those natural and cultural resources and develop ideas on how to use those resources in a sustainable way and come to us and see if we can assist them in that respect.”


People interested in accessing funding from the Global Environmental Facility Small Grants Programme for various projects, can apply on-line at, SGP.UNDP.ORG or SGP.BOECS.ORG.


Mr Bishnu Tulsie, the programme's representative in Saint Lucia, can also be contacted at the Saint Lucia National Trust for more information.
