The Small Grants Programme (SGP) is a corporate programme of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). It provides support for community-based innovation and empowerment. The SGP’s unique approach is based on three closely inter-connected pillars: global environmental benefits, poverty reduction and community empowerment.
The National Steering Committee (NSC) is the main decision-making body of the SGP in a country. The NSC is responsible for the overall oversight of the country programme, by providing input, endorsing and overseeing the implementation of the Country Programme Strategy –the guidelines for the implementation and grant making in each country programme. The NSC reviews, selects and approves projects for SGP funding support.
