I have seen SGP in the field and I must say this is a very vibrant programme. The involvement, the enthusiasm is there, - and that’s what is taking it forward.

"The best part of GEF project is that it allows the process based approach to meet local needs and vision building at local levels. It encourages, and enables community to participate in planning, design and implementation. It helps address the real pressing needs and offers options for sustainable solutions. The National Host Institution (NHI), and the National Coordinator provide enough flexibility and support for effective implementation of the project."

 
GEF SGP India provides support and vision for small NGOs and community groups,and develops local leadership for improved environmental and livelihood benefits.
