The proliferation of harmful chemicals is a growing concern for human health and well-being and the global environment.

During its 6th replenishment period (July 2014 to June 2018; GEF-6), GEF continues to play a catalytic role in leveraging budgetary resources to support elimination and reduction of harmful chemicals and waste.

The GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP) is the special window of the GEF providing financial and technical support to communities and civil society organizations for addressing global environmental challenges, while also promoting poverty reduction and sustainable development. In the chemicals and waste focal area, SGP focuses its support to communities at the forefront of chemical threats either as users or consumers, including women and indigenous peoples.

As of April 2017, SGP has supported 565 projects with an investment of more than $16 million in GEF grant funding, leveraging more than $18 million in co-financing from multiple sources. SGP’s chemicals and waste portfolio has focused on:  solid waste management to avoid open burning of waste;  pesticide management in agriculture and organic farming; • reduction of chemicals usage and contamination (such as PCB) in small-scale businesses;   capacity development, awareness raising and knowledge sharing.

El propósito de este Manual es proporcionar información accesible sobre el Programa de Pequenas Donaciones (PPD). La version inglés de la publicación se puede descargar aquí.

The GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP), implemented by UNDP, mobilizes bottom up actions by supporting community-led initiatives which address global environmental issues. During the reporting year, July 2016 - June 2017 (FY17), SGP provided grant funding for 1,120 new projects, committing a total amount of USD 35.9 million. The total number of grant projects under implementation were 3,125 projects, reflecting grant value of USD 107.8 million. Among those, a cohort of 758 GEF-financed small grant projects were completed and reported results. With regards to focal area distribution, biodiversity focal area remained as the largest portfolio (38%), followed by climate change mitigation (22%), land degradation (21%). international waters (3%), chemicals and wastes (3%), and capacity development (6%). In terms of regional distribution, Africa and the Latin America/Caribbean hosted the largest share of grant funds (32% each), followed by Asia/Pacific (25%), and Europe/CIS and the Arab States accounted for the rest (5% each).
