Small Grant Programme

The Regional Centre Small Grant Projects (SGP) is designed to channel bilateral donor funds for implementing the Convention through the regional and sub centres

The motto of RC-SGP is to identify and implement low cost high impact projects from the workplan of the regional centres. In order to achieve a high impact with relatively low resources, the Project promotes a competitive sense among the Centres by providing them with an opportunity to implement discrete project activities assisting eligible Parties to meet their obligations under the Convention.

The initial funding was made available by the Government of Norway for SGP in 2009 for that year. Norway has given continuation to the activity by making the funding available every year since its inception in 2009. In the meanwhile other donors such as Government of Sweden, EU have also made financial contribution to undertake project activities under this programme.
