SGP is the largest and longest standing corporate programme of the Global Environment Facility, dedicated to supporting civil society and community-based initiatives. It has been implemented by the United Nations Development Programme on behalf of the GEF Partnership since 1992.
For the last 30 years, SGP has been providing financial and technical support to civil society and community-based organizations on innovative community-driven initiatives that address global environmental issues – such as biodiversity loss, climate change, land degradation, international waters, and chemicals and waste management – while improving livelihoods. Throughout its journey, SGP has continuously evolved and has now grown into a unique global delivery mechanism to scale up local actions that can develop and deliver solutions to these multiple challenges.
This year SGP celebrates its 30th Anniversary. At COP 27 in Sharm El-Sheihk, SGP commemorated this milestone with key partners. Read more about the event HERE.
