On the 18th January 2013, the Small Grants Programme (SGP), implemented by UNDP in Seychelles awarded 5 new grants that were recently approved by its National Steering Committee. The total number of projects funded by SGP now stands at 20 for a total grant amount of US$1.1 million which has mobilized approximately US$580,000 in local co-financing. 

Below are the details of the new projects approved:

Grantee Focal Area Grant Amount
Wildlife Clubs of Seychelles Biodiversity  $50,000
Plaisance Community Outreach Committee                   Biodiversity $50,000
Artisanal Shark Fisher’s Association Biodiversity                                    $50,000
 Lions Club of Paradise Seychelles Chemicals $50,000
 Les Li Viv  Biodiversity $50,000

Given that the Seychelles islands are positioned in a biodiversity hotspot in the Indian Ocean, the SGP Seychelles’ portfolio has mostly focused on biodiversity conservation. However, in an effort to diversify the current portfolio, on this occasion a project on Persistent Organic Pollutants was approved.
