Baseline Assessment in the Coast Region – GEF Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP)
1. Background and Rationale
Over the past 17 years, the GEF has invested substantial financial resources in the development and implementation of the GEF Small Grants Programme, which currently operates in 120 countries.
At the individual country level, this investment has resulted in extensive portfolios of community based projects yielding positive impacts on local livelihoods, the capacities of local organizations to constructively participate in sustainable development activities, policy dialogue and, ultimately, global environmental benefits.
SGP results and impacts have grown over the years in many countries thanks to the installed capacity of the SGP Country Programmes.
These Programmes are managed by a National Coordinator (NC) at the service of a voluntary National Steering Committee (NSC) that is charged with Programme policy and decision making.
In addition, the UNDP country Office provides managerial support as well as administrative services to the SGP.
The overall objective of this consultancy is to:-
i) Conduct a baseline assessment in the coast region within the confines of the project framework, and identify gaps for SGP involvement in
- (i) mangrove forest conservation,
- (ii) conservation of globally significant marine BD, and
- (iii) strengthening the operations of BMUs within the context of Co-management areas.
(ii) Assist in organizing a regional SGP FSP launch in August 2012, at which the key findings of the baseline assessment will be disseminated to CSOs, government partners and stakeholders.
