BirdLife Botswana and GEF SGP Knowledge Fair 2012
The purpose of Knowledge Fairs will be to enable SGP grantees and stakeholders to network, share experiences and showcase best practices from SGP projects to promote the replication and scaling up of results for greater policy influence, as well as to promote sustainability and mobilize resources for community initiatives.

The activities will entail:
Production of promotional and publicity materials in particular a publication to showcase the results of the programme over the past 20 years in a portfolio review that provides analysis, detailed case studies and lessons learnt;
Hosting a knowledge Fair in Francistown including the organization of information sessions to enable grantees to share experiences, lessons, successes and challenges associated with project implementation for establishing linkages and networking;
A site visit to at least two SGP project(s) nearby where participants can learn best practices and see results on the ground.

Specifically the project will:
1. Exchange of experiences between NGOs/CBOs working to address global environment issues in order to facilitate exchange of knowledge and replication of best practices;
2. Improve awareness and understanding about the GEF SGP country programme and its strategy and results;
3. Promote and strengthen partnerships among all concerned stakeholders, such as, NGOs/CBOs, international funding agencies, government & local authorities, the business community, and local communities.
