By May 10, 2020 May 11th, 2020 Publications, SGP Featured Publication POM
In 2009 the GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP) entered into a partnership Australian Aid to improve the climate resilience of local communities in 42 countries, including 37 SIDS.
The goals of the programme are to: reduce the vulnerability and improve the adaptive capacity of local communities to the adverse impacts of climate change; provide countries with concrete ground level experience on local climate change adaptation; and provide clear policy lessons and mainstream community-based adaptation (CBA) within national processes, and scale up best practices. This brochure provides a summary of the portfolio and results.
