Title: The GEF Small Grants Programme SGP


1
The GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP)
Partnerships in Financing Community Renewable
Energy Projects
2
The GEF Small Grants Programme
  • Local solutions to global environmental
  • problems exist
  • Community-based initiatives and action
  • SGP grants direct to (CBOs) and (NGOs)

3
SGP Focal Areas
  • Biodiversity conservation
  • International waters
  • Land degradation
  • Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)
  • Climate Change where renewable energy project
    grants are made

4
Renewable energy projects represents 54 of all
climate change projects
5
  • In terms of total GEF grants of US 24 million,
    renewable energy projects have received US 13
    Million compared to US 9 and 2 for energy
    efficiency and sustainable transport.

6
Project examples
  • Hybrid solar wind energy for lighting in the
    Palestine Authority
  • Micro hydro power for community electricity
    production in the Dominican republic, Kenya,
    Philippines, Bolivia etc.
  • Wind and solar energy for water pumping in Mali

7
Project examples
Solar driers for herbs, vegetables and fruits in
the Palestine Authority
8
Project examples
Wind energy for irrigation in Tanzania,
9
Project examples
Wind energy for water pumping and irrigation in
Egypt
10
Project examples
  • Solar water heaters in Egypt
  • Project has developed a revolving fund for
    continuous maintenance and replication

11
Project examples
  • Solar cookers in Chile

12
Project examples Solar lighting in rural Cuba
13
Project examples
  • In small islands in Lake Victoria (Uganda)
  • Solar power cellphone recharging
  • Solar powered telephone system

14
Project examples
  • Renewable energy farm in Lithuania
  • Provides winter heating for a drug rehabilitation
    facility as well as material for handicrafts
    (baskets)

15
SGP Future Plans
  • Upscaling and replication of successful renewable
    energy projects
  • SGP to make use of
  • - its almost global coverage of 115 countries
    by end of 2006
  • - presence of a country-driven National Steering
    Committees
  • - experienced National Coordinators

16
SGP Future Plans
  • Upscaling and replication to involve more
    partnerships
  • - mainstreaming with local government
    sustainable development programs
  • - while only NGOs, CBOs and communities can be
    grantees of SGP, local governments can double
    resources available by cofinancing with SGP

17
SGP Future Plans
  • Upscaling and mainstreaming through
  • - innovative partnership with CRPM and nrg4SD
    (also with the UNDP Hub for Innovative
    Partnership in Geneva)
  • - South-South and North-South sharing of
    resources and technology can occur

18
SGP Grantmaking
  • Regular grants maximum of 50,000 to CBOs.
    NGOs, communities approval by National Steering
    Committee
  • Strategic projects maximum of 150,000 to
    capable NGOs to cover larger projects encourages
    partnerships for cofinancing and upscaling

19
Partnership with Local Government
  • SGP National Coordinator of Chile with Village
    Head and Mayor
  • SGP group in Chile with Governor and private
    sector partners

20
Financing energy activities through partnerships
  • Partnerships with Governments, private sector,
    civil society and communities have leveraged US
    16 million in cash and US 12 million in-kind
    co-financing (total US 28 million in
    co-financing) of GEFs grants of US 24 million
  • For example, of the US 16 million in cash
    co-financing, local Governments have directly
    contributed over US 2 million and the European
    partners over US 3 million, (about 1/3 of total
    cash for CC projects
  • The rest of the funds are from the civil society
    and communities who are also supported through
    charities and governments grants.

21
  • RE have leveraged 56 of cash co-financing from
    partners equivalent to US 9 million compared to
    US 4 and 3 for energy efficiency and sustainable
    transport projects.
  • The partners include Governments, local and
    regional authorities from developing countries
    and partners in Europe (US 5 million for all
    climate change projects).

22
Conclusion
  • The promotion of renewable energy requires
    steps beyond business as usual and thus itself
    requires a renewal of links or partnerships that
    allow resources to flow from those that have to
    those that are in need.
